Rumor: Knicks likely to trade Carmelo Anthony to Rockets this week
Tarek Fattal of the Los Angeles Daily News:
Very solid source close to HOU tells me that Carmelo Anthony is likely to be a Rocket by early this coming week. Stay tuned..— Tarek Fattal (@Tarek_Fattal) July 23, 2017
If true, that’d please at least Anthony.
There’s room for a trade to work. New York is clearly ready to move on from Anthony, and Houston wants him to join James Harden and Chris Paul. The Rockets can add sweeteners to convince another team – or maybe even the Knicks – to take a bad contract in the trade.
But this has dragged on so long, I need more evidence the deal is actually close before I believe it.
