The New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder agreed on Saturday to a trade that will send 10-time All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony to the Thunder in exchange for center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott and a 2018 draft pick.

The deal will pair the 33-year-old Anthony with last season's MVP Russell Westbrook and four-time All-Star Paul George, acquired by the Thunder in July, giving the team an powerful offensive trio that will pose a real threat to the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

Anthony has told the Knicks he would accept trades only to Houston and Cleveland, but a deal finally becomes possible when he agreed to add Oklahoma City to his list of destinations.

The deal will be made official on Monday.

Anthony will see his old teammates soon as the Knicks open the regular season at Oklahoma City on Oct. 19.
