  • Rockets lose Cameroon’s Mbah a Moute, seek Carmelo—report

Anthony is now a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the two sides are reportedly working on parting ways, whether through a trade, a buyout, or waiving via the stretch provision.

It's an era of NBA basketball in which contending teams often build a "Big Three" to help them win titles and adding Anthony to the mix in Houston would give the Rockets just that.

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Oklahoma City Thunder looks on during the game against the Utah Jazz in Game Four of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 23, 2018 at vivint.SmartHome Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.




One year after the Houston Rockets thought they had a deal in place for then-New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, they are back at it again this offseason.

A league source confirmed the meeting.

There you have it. He may be even more motivated to do that if reaches a buyout agreement with the Thunder. Those teams are both over the salary cap and will likely wait for Anthony to be traded to another team, then waived, so he can then be signed to the veteran's minimum or the $5.3 million taxpayer mid-level exception. ESPN's Dave McMenamin reported Paul and head coach Mike D'Antoni talked with Anthony's camp over the weekend. However, this would do little to ease the Thunder's tax burdens, so such a move makes little sense unless Sam Presti can find someone willing to part with a player that would move the needle next season and beyond. Further reports have now suggested we're moving closer to that eventuality. This chapter should come to its unceremonious ending in short order.
