The Thunder didn't make the same mistake again, agreeing to terms with Paul George on a stunning four-year deal when free agency officially opened.
Last week, Anthony opted into the final year of his contract, worth $27.9 million.
That would effectively end the rumor that LeBron James and Kevin Durant were going to team up in Los Angeles to play for the Lakers.
The Los Angeles Lakers have a new superstar.
George was actually in town Saturday night, as star teammate Russell Westbrook reportedly threw a big party.
George, who would have been among the top prizes available in free agency, was traded to the Thunder last summer from the Indiana Pacers, giving Oklahoma City a season to try to work out a longer-term relationship.
The Denver Nuggets signed two key players. The contract will keep a Warriors team together that obliterated just about everyone in 2017-18 en route to their third National Basketball Association championship in four years.
The Phoenix Suns signed forward Trevor Ariza to a one-year deal worth $15 million.
The reality, of course, beats the alternative, but one could argue that instead of treading water, the Rocketstook a step backward by losing Ariza, and there's no obvious way to replace his impact going into next season. At 33 years old, Ariza will be a good mentor to an up and coming team in the Phoenix Suns.
Durant will have a player option in Year 2 of the deal. Durant won the Finals MVP award by a 7-4 vote over Stephen Curry, as determined by a select panel of Warriors and Cavaliers beat writers as well as national NBA writers and broadcasters. Durant is looking to be the the best player in the world.
According to multiple reports, Paul has agreed a lucrative four-year max salary deal with the Rockets, worth $160million. Not only do they get to keep the 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals MVP, but they also get some financial flexibility in the deal.
Down in Houston, Paul has told Rockets fans the same thing.
James' agency made the announcement in a release, saying he has agreed to a four-year, $154 million contract. That time period will also coincide for when Warriors guard Klay Thompson becomes an unrestricted free agent. This time, it won't happen.
The fire , which was human caused , is just five per cent contained, according to InciWeb, a federal government wildfire website. The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad said the fire destroyed its outdoor concert stage and it is raising money to rebuild it.

The 36-year-old is now 183rd in the rankings but has called for players returning from pregnancy to have protected seedings. New mother Williams, who is only ranked 183rd in the world, secured the 25th seeding ahead of Cibulkova who is ranked 32nd.
Trump has been attacking the press for years but really ratcheted up his efforts when he became a presidential candidate. Buckley told The Baltimore Sun he was disappointed the tragedy was not being given enough importance.
Gimenez has returned to training and could be available to play against Portugal and his familiar Real Madrid adversary. Getty Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are both looking for their first World Cup. "But he's in another category".
It was a five-pass buildup from deep in its own end that culminated in Uruguay's first goal, and the final two passes were ideal . Earlier, Portugal coach Fernando Santos said he hoped Ronaldo would remain part of the worldwide set-up.
The Trudeau government's decision to stand up to Trump with retaliatory measures has attracted wide support in Canada. Ottawa is also promising to boost funding for the provinces and territories to increase job and training programs.
But the Warriors obtained Kevin Durant after that loss and Golden State has gone 8-1 against the Cavs in the two NBA Finals since. That would turn him into a free agent, and he reportedly has eyes on going to the Lakers to play with James.
Rédoine Faïd abandoned the helicopter on the outskirts of Paris after using it to escape Réau prison in the south-eastern suburbs. Dressed all in black, two men wearing balaclavas and police armbands got off the chopper and entered the prison to look for Faid.
