Melo to Houston?


Houston Rockets Reportedly “Determined” to Sign Veteran All-Star

Attempting to compensate for the loss of some key players, the Houston Rockets are determined to sign Carmelo Anthony once the Oklahoma City Thunder make him available, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The report comes on the heels of small forward Luc Mbah A Moute leaving the Rockets to sign with the Clippers. Houston has already lost another small forward, Trevor Ariza, to Phoenix, increasing their urgency to bring in Anthony as a replacement.

Reports surfaced on July 6 that the Thunder were looking to rid themselves of Anthony’s contract. The combination of Melo opting into the $27.9 million final year of his contract, and the re-signing of Paul George and Jerami Grant has put Oklahoma City at an estimated $310 million in salary and luxury tax next season, an NBA record.

Though Anthony finished last season with a career-low 16.2 PPG on 40% shooting, the 10-time all-star is a proven scorer, and could be of use to the Rockets, easing James Harden‘s scoring burden.

Other teams linked to Anthony include the Heat, the 76ers and the Lakers.
