The Rockets should sign Carmelo Anthony, but only under these conditions

But the Thunder traditionally doesn't like to part with assets for nothing, thus making a trade the first priority in a mutual split between Anthony and the team.

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has re-signed free agent guard/forward Gerald Green.

The Thunder could save close to $100 million in luxury tax by waiving Anthony, then stretching his remaining $27.9 million over three seasons (the Thunder has until August 31 to stretch his contract).

Anthony and his representatives met with Rockets and Heat officials at the site of the NBA Summer League in recent days, league sources told ESPN...

Anthony, 34, opted into the final year of his contract in June, and is set to make $27.9 million next season.

The American then cruised through the deciding set with a single break of serve enough to ensure her place in the semi-finals. Preview: Serena Williams is excited to face an opponent whose game she's familiar with in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Tim MacMahon of ESPN reported an update on the negotiations between the Rockets and Capela, who's a restricted free agent.

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. Swapping Melo for a player (s) of lesser value would also create a trade exception for OKC.

As recently as the 2016-17 season, Anthony averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game. The Rockets jumped from 26th in points-per-game allowed all the way up to sixth in his one season.

If Anthony were to end up in Miami, it would add a scoring punch to a team that finished sixth in the Eastern Conference past year.
