Rockets reportedly 'determined' to sign Carmelo Anthony

Rockets reportedly 'determined' to sign Carmelo Anthony

Wojnarowski added Carmelo is "determined" to sign with Houston once he hits free agency.

In short, the Rockets would not only have to be in the luxury tax but also have a problem very similar to the Thunder and could reach $300 million in payroll in the near future if more considerable additions are made. He acknowledged that Ariza and Mbah a Moute were significant losses for the Rockets.

Furthermore, Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz reports that Chris Paul is encouraging the Rockets to sign his good friend Carmelo, and ESPN's Dave McMenamin says Melo's business manager recently spent time with Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni and team owner Tilman Fertitta.

"Both Trevor and Mbah a Moute were a big part of our team", Morey said. Coach Mike D'Antoni said the Rockets would continue to use a switch-intensive scheme and expects to replicate the defensive success of last season, when Houston led the National Basketball Association with 65 regular-season wins.

Cyclospora cayetanensis , the CDC noted, is a "single-celled parasite that causes an intestinal infection called cyclosporiasis ". Other common symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps/pain, bloating, increased gas, nausea, and fatigue.

The Rockets again will have to make up for losing him. Mbah a Moute's one-year deal with the Rockets, if they were not using their mid-level exception, would have been worth $2.4 million but would have given him early Larry Bird rights next summer to exceed the salary cap to re-sign with the Rockets. The Thunder could save close to $100 million in luxury tax by waiving Anthony, then stretching his remaining $27.9 million over three seasons.

The 34-year-old is coming off his worst season in the National Basketball Association, as he posted career lows in scoring average and field goal percentage last season.

But having lost two of their top eight scorers, including a starter in Ariza, the Rockets can't be choosy as they seek to follow up their team-record 65 victories last season.

When Carmelo Anthony becomes a free agent, Houston will be waiting.
