Houston Rockets Determined To Sign Carmelo Anthony

Rockets Re-sign Chris Paul

Carmelo Anthony is expected to hit the free agent market soon, as the Oklahoma City Thunder are reportedly working on either a buyout or a stretching of his contract.

"Sources told ESPN that the Rockets' initial offer to Capela was in the four-year, $60 million range, with the blossoming star center seeking a deal similar to Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams' four-year, $100 million contract", MacMahon wrote.

The Rockets are among the teams that Anthony is reportedly interested in playing for, though money could be an issue.

The Heat, who perhaps will bring back Anthony buddy Dwyane Wade, will be another strong suitor for Anthony's services, according to ESPN. The 31-year-old averaged 7.5 points, three rebounds, and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes per game across 61 games (15 starts) in Houston.




The deal is for one year, $4.3 million.

Mbah a Moute, who had a one-year deal worth $2.1 million last season, turns 32 in September. Could Melo be headed to the Houston Rockets?

Multiple reports on Sunday said Rockets guard Chris Paul wants Anthony, a good friend of his, to join the Rockets, while Anthony is also believed to have interest in joining LeBron James with the Los Angeles Lakers. Despite his defensive limitations, Anthony shot 37.2 percent on catch-and-shoot 3-pointers in his lone season with the Thunder, and made a career-high 169 3-pointers. 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.

Recognized as a top wing defender, Bradley, 27, has averaged 12.3 points over his eight National Basketball Association seasons, the first seven of which were with the Boston Celtics.
