The Houston Rockets are desperately trying to form a ‘Big 3’. Carmelo Anthony is their prime target to fill that hole.
Steve Kyler (Basketball Insiders) said the Houston Rockets are willing to go “all-in” on the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes
In order to land Melo, Houston would have to make a trade and they’re willing to trade anybody not named Dwight Howard or James Harden.
Houston would trade almost anything not named Dwight Howard and James Harden to get at Anthony and they would go all in on a contract too. There has been talk that Houston has offered up Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin in a “give away” trade that could include their draft pick in the first round or a roster player like Terrence Jones to get those salaries off the books.
Melo in Houston sounds good on paper, but the Rockets were already one of the top offensive teams in the league. Adding Melo makes them even better offensively, but what about on the other side of the ball?
