Clippers bring back Mbah a Moute; Rockets targeting Anthony

Given the recent news that Carmelo Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder are planning to part ways this summer, attention has shifted to his next destination. Losing Mbah A Moute and small forward Trevor Ariza, who agreed to a deal with the Phoenix Suns, opens up a spot for Anthony if a deal can be made.

Last week, The Oklahoman confirmed another Wojnarowski report that the Thunder has intentions of trying to find a suitable trade for Anthony before the end of the summer.

What could make a trade easier, however, is if Anthony and his representation knew he was going to immediately be waived by the team which traded for him, thus making him eligible to sign with Houston, or even Miami and the Los Angeles Lakers, who are also reportedly interested in the 15-year veteran. But with Mbah a Moute and Ariza gone from a team that improved to sixth in the league defensively, the Rockets likely will seek to sign a young prospect with strong potential on defensive.

He played one season for the Rockets and was an important piece in the Rockets' defensive resurgence. They could have offered Mbah a Moute up to $5.3 million, their taxpayer mid-level exception, but could have sought to save that or much of it for Anthony. The Clippers' offer would have cost them roughly $16 million.

Anthony, 34, opted into the final year of his contract in June, and is set to make $27.9 million next season. He hit just 40.2 percent of his shots and averaged a career-low 16.2 points in 2017-18.

The Rockets finished the 2017-18 regular season with a 65-17 record.

First-year owner Tilman Fertitta adamantly stated that the NBA's luxury tax is not influencing the Houston Rockets' offseason decisions.
