Report: Rockets Will Make a Bid For Carmelo


I hadn’t thought about Melo to the Rockets.

They already have a scorer who likes to have the ball in his hands in James Harden, so I am not quite sure how that would work that out, but the Rockets are interested.

Here are the details according to New York Post.

According to a league source, the Rockets will make a bid for Carmelo Anthony this summer, even though they probably won’t have cap space and would have to orchestrate a creative sign-and-trade. The source said Houston asked the Knicks about Anthony before February’s trade deadline.

The sign and trade would have to include either Jeremy Lin or Omer Asik as well as draft picks. The Knicks could be interested in the picks and since Lin and Asik come off the books in 2015 it wouldn’t do much damage to their long term plans. The Knicks are stuck with several bad contracts that all come off the books in 2015.

Right now this is just speculation, but another team to key an eye on.
