According to ESPN, the Knicks and Rockets are discussing a trade involving Carmelo Anthony. The teams are looking to possibly add two more teams to the mix, but nothing is close, according to the report.
Reportedly, Anthony has been willing to waive his no-trade clause for only the Rockets or Cavaliers. Cleveland is said to be still interested in acquiring the 10-time All-Star.
The Knicks are reportedly unwilling to take back any older players in any deal with the Rockets, and are unwilling to take back any big contracts, thus the reason for additional teams, according to the report.
Adding the 33-year-old Anthony to the Rockets would form a “Big 3″(Harden and Paul) in Houston. With a point guard like Chris Paul, this should be able to work. With LeBron in Cleveland, Melo would work with the Cavaliers too. We’ll see where this goes!
Sources: Knicks, Rockets working on Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios that include four-team deals. Sides motivated but no agreement imminent.
