It's just how he operates. Things don't change.”

The deadline for Carmelo Anthony to exercise his early termination option on the final year of his contract is Saturday. The expectation is Anthony will not exercise the option, putting him on the Thunder's books for $27.9 million. “We've had several conversations with his representation and that's pretty normal course,” Thunder GM Sam Presti said late Thursday after the draft. “I wish I could tell you a whole lot has changed since the end of the season. We're still in June and the season doesn't start until October, so we'll continue to have that dialogue going forward."
