Rockets targeting Anthony after losing Mbah a Moute

Rockets targeting Anthony after losing Mbah a Moute

First, it was Trevor Ariza bolting for a one-year, $15 million in Phoenix, leaving them without their veteran wing starter.

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

A marriage between Anthony and the Rockets may actually work as he is good friends with Chris Paul, they need help on the wing, and, as Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals showed, they could use more firepower against the Golden State Warriors.

Facing a major frontline talent loss, the Rockets are hoping to add four-time US Olympian Carmelo Anthony, who is expected to have his contract bought out by Oklahoma City and become a free agent before the end of next week.

Sources told ESPN that the Rockets' initial offer to Capela was in the four-year, $60 million range, with the blossoming star center seeking a deal similar to Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams' four-year, $100 million contract. The native of Cameroon spent the 2015-16 and 16-17 seasons with the Clips before signing with the Rockets as a free agent prior to this past season.

Tony Parker agrees to deal with Charlotte Hornets
Parker hoped to make it an even 20 seasons with the Spurs , which would require the team to re-sign him for three years. Tony Parker became the only unrestricted free agent, heading into the offseason, from the San Antonio Spurs .

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra advocates signing Anthony, according to the ESPN report. Despite his defensive limitations, Anthony shot 37.2 percent on catch-and-shoot 3-pointers in his lone season with the Thunder, and made a career-high 169 3-pointers.

Bradley appeared in six games with the Clippers after arriving in the Blake Griffin trade last season, averaging 9.2 points before having season-ending surgery to fix a sports hernia.

He previously played for the Clippers for two years prior to joining the Rockets.

Green, 32, has averaged 9.8 points and 19.7 minutes in 585 regular-season games.
