Carmelo Anthony to Rockets? Juicy Summer League sighting blows race wide open

Oklahoma City needs Anthony to waive his no-trade clause to allow him to leave. The Rockets are in need of a forward that can stretch the floor after Trevor Ariza and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute fled Houston in free agency. Thus, Anthony's one-year, $27.9 million expiring contract could be enticing for a team looking to part with long-term contracts, even if the team can't fully carve out $27.9 million in space.

Wojnarowski also reports that Oklahoma City is working on trades for the the 34-year-old.

But the Heat has become a consideration because Anthony is said to like South Florida and the Heat organization and because of his friendship with Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who remains an unsigned free agent.

Capela has averaged 10.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in his career.

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...

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

But Anthony has averaged 24.1 points and shot 44.9 percent in 15 National Basketball Association seasons and has been one of the NBA's premier scorers of the past 20 years.

Mbah a Moute has been a defensive stalwart throughout his 10-year career, averaging almost a steal per game throughout his tenure in the league and eclipsing that mark three of the past four seasons.

Worryingly, his presence on the court saw the Thunder's team plus/minus rating slide to negative 14.3 during the playoffs.
