According to Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony, a big deal was about to go down on the night of the 2017 NBA Draft, before it was “axed”.

“Me and PG[Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George] have a very close friendship,” Anthony stated in an interview with SiriusXM radio, per Ian Begley of ESPN.com.

“Actually, it was funny because me and PG was supposed to be in Cleveland on draft night. We were communicating about that. The deal was actually done and it got called off on draft night, so me and PG stayed connected throughout the course of the season.”

The Cavaliers, Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets discussed a deal that would have sent George from Indiana to Cleveland, Kevin Love from Cleveland to Denver and a package that included Denver’s Gary Harris and Denver’s No. 13 pick going to Indiana, according to Ramona Shelburne, Dave McMenamin and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Anthony also that a trade that would have sent him to the Houston Rockets was also done but for “some reason…it didn’t go through.”

Both Anthony and George landed in Oklahoma City so they could team up with Thunder guard and MVP Russell Westbrook to take a shot at the Golden State Warriors reign over the NBA and the Western Conference.

With one of the worst records in the NBA, Cleveland can afford to take their time with Love and bring him back slowly.

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love believes that his life has a greater purpose beyond being a productive and successful player in the National Basketball Association and is embracing his role as the league’s unofficial ambassador on mental health.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”
