Carmelo Anthony’s Daily Salary: $5.1 Million


Many of Carmelo Anthony’s critics claim that the 10-time All-Star never really cared about his teams and that he always has been only in it for the money. This is why everyone expected him to opt-into his 2018-19 deal with the Thunder worth $27.9 million.

Melo then was traded to the Atlanta Hawks in a three-way deal. The Thunder received Dennis Schröder from Atlanta and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot from Philadelphia. The Hawks meamwhile now have Justin Anderson (Sixers) on their roster and receive a lottery-protected 2022 first-round draft pick from the Thunder. Philly gets Mike Muscala from Atlanta.

Anthony never played a minute for the Hawks, and was bought out of his contract. This has led to a ridiculous amount of money, Melo was paid per day, while being a Hawk. Anthony’s daily salary in Atlanta was $5.1 million.
