Melo, who is “expected to receive” a one-year deal at the League’s veteran minimum of $2.4 million, has to wait to become a free agent until his pending trade from Oklahoma City to Atlanta is finalized.
The Hawks have already agreed to release Anthony and he will still be paid the scheduled $27.9 million from his previous contract next season.
