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

Despite a poor year in Oklahoma City, during which the four-time Olympic gold medallist nearly became unplayable during the Thunder's miserable first-round playoff loss to the Utah Jazz, there are no shortage of teams reportedly interested in acquiring him.

Wojnarowski reports that the Thunder could stretch Anthony's contract out within the next 7-10 days if a trade doesn't materialize.

Though the Heat would be very open to a trade for Anthony, the Thunder is reportedly looking to shed salary, not add the type of longterm deals that the Heat has been shopping.

Wojnarowski also reported that Rockets small forward Luc Mbah A Moute has agreed to a one-year deal with the Clippers.

Green, a native of Houston, signed a 10-day contract with the Rockets on December 28 and ended up staying for the season. Mbah A Moute became a key part of the Rockets' franchise best 65-17 record last season.

First, it was Trevor Ariza bolting for a one-year, $15 million in Phoenix, leaving them without their veteran wing starter. Obviously, James Harden and Chris Paul are the boosters that make the Rockets fly, but Capela's the third piece that pushes them over the top.

Anthony, who turned 34 last month, is coming off a season in which he averaged a career-low 16.2 points and shot a career-worst 40.4 percent from the field.

He previously played for the Clippers for two years prior to joining the Rockets.

Green originally signed with the Rockets on December 28, 2017 and averaged 12.1 points over the remainder of the season.

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.
