PBT Extra: Carmelo Anthony will be a Rocket, but will he accept new role?

Carmelo Anthony and the Thunder are reportedly parting ways in a trade that benefits all sides involved. But can the superstar blend in with Houston's offense if he goes to the Rockets?

Carmelo Anthony will be a Houston Rocket soon.

How smoothly things go this season with him is another question entirely, something I get into a little in this latest PBT Extra. However, after a three-team trade involving Atlanta, Oklahoma City, and Philadelphia was agreed to in principle, it’s just a matter of time. Anthony is being traded to the Hawks, who will waive him, making him a free agent.

Then he signs with James Harden, Chris Paul, and the rest of the Rockets. Oklahoma City gets Dennis Schroder, another guy who will have to accept a new role. Philly adds some shooting. Watch the video above for a breakdown.
