Carmelo Anthony Granted Permission To Meet With Rockets, Heat

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

A league source confirmed the meeting.

Though still a member of the Thunder, Anthony and the team are reportedly working together on parting ways, whether through trade, a buyout or waiving via the stretch provision.

Paul Pierce says Carmelo Anthony's best fit is with the Houston Rockets.

The team can either trade him, or put him on waivers and stretch out his contract.

The Rockets are expected to vigorously pursue Anthony to replace Trevor Ariza, who signed with Phoenix.

The moves add to uncertainty for the Rockets around Swiss free agent center Clint Capela, who has not agreed to a new deal.

Those rumours picked up steam Tuesday when Wojnarowski reported that Anthony was given permission by the Thunder to meet with prospective teams.

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.

The 10-time All-Star shot 35.7 per cent on three-pointers past year, failing to increase his efficiency from the previous season, 34.7 per cent, despite playing alongside Paul George and Russell Westbrook. The Rockets jumped from 26th in points-per-game allowed all the way up to sixth in his one season. He is coming off of a career season, where he averaged 13.9 points, 10.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks.

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.
