Rockets reportedly 'determined' to sign Carmelo Anthony

Adjust Comment Print

Last season, his first with the OKC Thunder, Anthony averaged 16.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

Melo recently opted in to his contract with Oklahoma City to garner $27.9 million next season.

Those two teams are the Houston Rockets and the Miami Heat, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Anthony reportedly has met with the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat.

World powers back Iran oil exports, remain committed to nuclear deal
Several major firms - including France's Total and Peugeot, and Russia's Lukoil - have said they are preparing to leave. US-Iran relations have been hostile since the 1979 overthrow of the US-backed shah and US embassy hostage crisis.

A league source confirmed the meeting. Certainly sounds like there will be movement on this sooner rather than later, doesn't it? The Sacramento Kings have salary cap space and signed Zach LaVine to an offer sheet, but the Chicago Bulls matched it. As their roster now sits, the Thunder would owe approximately $310 million in salary and luxury tax next season which would be a record. Wade also remains a possibility for that exception if he chooses to play. The 11-year National Basketball Association journeyman has also played for the Celtics, Timberwolves, Mavericks, Nets, Pacers, Suns and Heat.

It's a little surprising that Capela has gone this deep into free agency without a contract, but that is most likely related to him being a restricted free agent. 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.

The Lakers did not disclose terms of the contracts, but multiple reports have Stephenson's deal worth $4.5 million for one year and McGee earning the league minimum for one year. This chapter should come to its unceremonious ending in short order.
