Anthony also admitted in the same interview that there was another trade that fell through before the eventual deal to the Thunder came to fruition.
"Me and PG have a very close friendship", Anthony said, via ESPN.
The star forward said during a Sirius XM interview on Thursday that there was a draft-night deal in place to send the pair to the Cleveland Cavaliers to play alongside LeBron James, but the trade was ultimately nixed.
It was a realistic dream team that suddenly turned into a pipe dream after a deal between the Rockets and New York Knicks fell apart.
Anthony, a 10-time All-Star, had been angling for a trade for the majority of the offseason, but a strict no-trade clause hindered the Knicks' ability to move him.
Oklahoma City's general manager is perhaps best known for drafting Kevin Durant, James Harden and Russell Westbrook. Anthony was involved in trade rumors with the Cavaliers as early as the 2016 trade deadline.
"Actually, it was amusing because me and (George were) supposed to be in Cleveland on draft night", Anthony said.
Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks handles the ball against the Sacramento Kings on December 10, 2015, at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. Anthony said he and George were constantly communicating about the deal, which was actually done, but it was called off on the night of the NBA Draft.
Right around that time, the Daily News had reported that a trade between the teams was "at the 2-yard line". "But then believe it or not, I felt like I was going to be back in training camp and I would show up to media day in NY".
As Sean Hannity's guest
In the key 25-54 viewer demographic, Hannity's show received 666,000 viewers while Maddow's show received 591,000. In perhaps a very calculated (and brilliant?) move, Hannity invited O'Reilly to be a guest in the time slot debut.
