The Houston Rockets Are Reportedly ‘Determined’ To Get Carmelo Anthony

Depleted by the defections of Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute in free agency, the Houston Rockets are "determined" to add Carmelo Anthony once the veteran forward secures his departure from the Oklahoma City Thunder, writes ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

A move away from the Thunder for Anthony to either the Rockets or the Heat would benefit all parties involved, as the Thunder receive their cost savings, while Melo will get more minutes at either franchise listed as possible destinations.

After a sub-par 1st season with the OKC Thunder - Carmelo Anthony made a decision to give it one more go with the team by opting into his contract that would pay him $27.9 million.

Undoubtedly, the Rockets' losses in the frontcourt in free agency has created a sense of urgency for Houston to patch some of those holes.


Furthermore, Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz reports that Chris Paul is encouraging the Rockets to sign his good friend Carmelo, and ESPN's Dave McMenamin says Melo's business manager recently spent time with Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni and team owner Tilman Fertitta.

He played one season for the Rockets and was an important piece in the Rockets' defensive resurgence. The Clippers' offer would have cost them roughly $16 million. The Thunder could save close to $100 million in luxury tax by waiving Anthony, then stretching his remaining $27.9 million over three seasons.

Carmelo Anthony is now being pursued by the Houston Rockets. Anthony is now in the twilight of his career, barely shooting 40 percent from the field with the Thunder past year and averaging a career low in points while putting in his usual effort, or lack thereof, on defense.
