Chris Paul eager to join fellow former-Hornets in Houston

The Rockets reportedly aren't being bashful about paying Anthony his guaranteed salary ($26,243,760) for the 2017-18 season, but the final year of that contract in 2018-19 ($27.9 million guaranteed) might be a roadblock unless the Knicks are willing to absorb a portion. However, Hardaway admits that Carmelo has to do what is best for him and his family and if that means leaving the New York organization, that is what will happen. In a Clippers starting lineup with only one other shooter above league average from three, it makes sense that teams could pack the lane and coerce Paul into deeper midrange shots.

As New York Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry pursue a meeting with Carmelo Anthony in the coming days, league sources told ESPN that the 10-time All-Star is counting on the franchise to carry out its previously agreed upon mandate to trade him to the Houston Rockets.

This followed the revelation that Anthony is willing to waive his no-trade clause for the Cleveland Cavaliers or Houston Rockets. Anthony has US$54.2 million (AU$70.9 million) left on the five-year max deal he signed with New York ahead of the 2014-15 season. That's from the islands. He's joined by his trusty spirit animal, Squatch, who Perry has been kind enough to employ as his personal assistant/trade sounding board ever since the Sonics moved to OKC.

Jackson and his associates repeatedly called out Anthony in public, harping on his perceived "me-first" attitude and implying that he was ill-suited to the triangle offense because he held on to the ball too long.

Since joining the Houston Rockets via trade, James Harden raised his profile from off-the-bench role player to superstar leader.

"I've coached a lot of people and watched a lot of games and the stuff that he did day in and day out was incredible", D'Antoni said.

-Houston Rockets superstar James Harden says he will be in Houston "forever" after officially signing the richest contract in NBA history. That, finally, was enough for Anthony, who in the past had been reluctant to waive his no-trade clause. After acquiring Dwight Howard in 2013, the Rockets looked like a squad that would make serious noise in the playoffs for years to come. What they have been able to do hear and the way they play I think I can incorporate myself here and do something great.
