Atlanta will be right at the salary cap after acquiring Carmelo Anthony and Justin Anderson. To fit the Anthony and Anderson salary, Atlanta will likely need to waive the $1.4M Antonius Cleveland non-guaranteed contract. For next season, Atlanta projects to have $57M in cap space and the potential to have three first round picks. Besides their own, Atlanta has a top 10 protected pick from Cleveland and a top 5 protected first from Dallas.

The pick the Thunder are sending the Hawks is a 2022 lottery protected first rounder (1-14), league sources tell ESPN. If it doesn't convey, it'll become two second rounders the following year.

Sources: Melo headed to Hawks, will be waived

OKC will deal Carmelo Anthony to the Hawks for a package that includes Dennis Schroder. Anthony will be waived, and the Rockets are front-runners for him.

Atlanta is now up to $9M in room after the Jaylen Morris waiver. The guard had a $1.4M non-guaranteed contract. The Hawks and Sacramento ($20.5M) are the lone teams that have significant cap space.

Taking in the $12.5M expiring contract of Jeremy Lin now has the Hawks with $8.9M in room and 13 guaranteed contracts. Lin has a 10% trade bonus valued at $1.25M that Brooklyn would be responsible for if the guard does not waive it. The cap hit would increase to $13.7 million and room for Atlanta would decrease to $7.7 million. Lin has $2.25M in unlikely bonuses in his contract that range from statistical achievements to All-NBA honors. The Hawks have two players on non-guaranteed contracts, Jaylen Morris ($1.4M) and Antonius Cleveland ($1.4M).
