  • Rockets lose Cameroon’s Mbah a Moute, seek Carmelo—report

That duo served as two of the Rockets' best defenders, with the ability to match up with guards and forwards in the team's switch-heavy scheme. They already lost key contributors Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute in free agency.

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Oklahoma City Thunder looks on during the game against the Utah Jazz in Game Four of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 23, 2018 at vivint.SmartHome Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Houston is "determined to sign Carmelo Anthony once he becomes free in OKC", Wojnarowski tweeted Monday.

Anthony met with officials from the Heat and Houston Rockets at the National Basketball Association summer league in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

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

According to Wojnarowski, the Thunder have begun exploring trades where Anthony could be moved as an expiring contract and be waived, becoming a free agent once his $27.9 million clears waivers.

Tony Parker agrees to deal with Hornets, reports say
The six-time All-Star is the No. 4 all-time scorer in Spurs history and the franchise's career assists leader. In March, a frustrated Parker told the media that his injury was "a hundred times worse" than Leonard's.

If Anthony signed with Miami, he would be eligible to receive the $2.4 million veteran's minimum, the $3.4 million biannual exception or the $5.3 million taxypayer midlevel exception.

The Rockets also have similar vehicles to sign Anthony.

James's Los Angeles Lakers could also offer Anthony a possible way out of Oklahoma while remaining Banana Boat buddy Wade would also relish the chance to play alongside the former Denver Nugget in South Beach. Anthony is now in the twilight of his career, barely shooting 40 percent from the field with the Thunder previous year and averaging a career low in points while putting in his usual effort, or lack thereof, on defense.
