Twitter blasts the Hawks trading for Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony will not play a single game in an Atlanta Hawks uniform. Sure the team traded for the 10-time All-Star, but that was more of a salary dump than anything else.

Having been able to move Dennis Schroder’s contract in the deal, Atlanta will now certainly work with Melo on a buyout.

In no way does this mean Atlanta made a good move here. Coming off a disastrous 24-win season, Schroder was by far the Hawks’ best player. They’ve now moved him in nothing more than a salary dump as the rebuild in Atlanta hits its next step.

Needless to say, those on Twitter were not too kind to this trade from a Hawks perspective.
