Wed Jul 1220:09Report: Rockets, Knicks zero in on Melo swap
Carmelo Anthony is willing to waive his no-trade clause to join the Houston Rockets, and the New York Knicks are ramping up their efforts to oblige. According to ESPN, the teams are diligently working on a deal to send Anthony to Houston where he would join All-Star point guard Chris Paul and James Harden, another All-Star and volume scorer who flourished in Mike D'Antoni's offense last season. Anthony and former team president Phil Jackson feuded through the media with the Knicks mired in a rebuild and Anthony, who signed a five-year, $124 million deal upon Jackson's arrival, failing to meet Jackson's expectations.
