Anthony opted in to the final year of his five-year maximum contract worth $27.9 million before free agency, but when the Oklahoma City Thunder re-signed Paul George, the franchise and Anthony elected to part ways.

Anthony averaged 16.2 points per game in 78 games with the Thunder as he spent the majority of the year adjusting to playing alongside Russell Westbrook and George.
