Houston Rockets "Determined" To Sign Carmelo Anthony



Anthony would have to approve the trade.

Earlier Tuesday, ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Thunder have granted Anthony permission to speak with prospective suitors since it appears "inevitable" he will not be with the team next season.

Once the 34-year old forward is officially free to sign with another team, it is believed he'll draw interest from a number of teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets.

A league source confirmed the meeting.

Rockets point guard Chris Paul has been "advocating" the club add Anthony according to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz.

The move also puts the Rockets' hopes of retaining restricted free agent Clint Capela deeper into limbo.

The 10-time All-Star shot 35.7 per cent on three-pointers past year, failing to increase his efficiency from the previous season, 34.7 per cent, despite playing alongside Paul George and Russell Westbrook.

But Anthony has averaged 24.1 points and shot 44.9 percent in 15 National Basketball Association seasons and has been one of the NBA's premier scorers of the past 20 years. He's averaged 24.1 points over 15 National Basketball Association seasons, but winning in the postseason has been one thing Anthony has always struggled to do.

Worryingly, his presence on the court saw the Thunder's team plus/minus rating slide to negative 14.3 during the playoffs. The money works on a hypothetical Dion Waiters + James Johnson for Melo deal, which would give the Heat a massive expiring contract ahead of the 2019 offseason while also cutting ties with assets that may not be in their long-term plans.
