Houston Rockets "Determined" To Sign Carmelo Anthony

Rockets lose Cameroon’s Mbah a Moute, seek Carmelo—report Clippers bring back Mbah a Moute; Rockets targeting Anthony

Luc Mbah a Moute, who averaged almost 20 minutes per game over two seasons with the Clippers before heading to the Houston Rockets, has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million deal to return to Los Angeles.

The Houston Rockets see Carmelo Anthony of the Oklahoma City Thunder as the ideal replacement for the now-departed Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. The Rockets last week lost Trevor Ariza, who signed a one-year deal with Phoenix.

With 11 players on the roster, the Rockets' payroll stands at $118.5 million, approximately $5.2 million shy of the luxury tax.

Anthony opted into the final year of his near $28m deal last month, contributing to a dangerously-inflated payroll that now sits at around $310m in OKC.

Undoubtedly, the Rockets' losses in the frontcourt in free agency has created a sense of urgency for Houston to patch some of those holes.

If Anthony does become a free agent, the Rockets won't be the only team interested in his services.

Re-signing point guard Chris Paul to a four-year, $160 million maximum contract virtually guaranteed that the Rockets would pay luxury tax this season. But with Mbah a Moute and Ariza gone from a team that improved to sixth in the league defensively, the Rockets likely will seek to sign a young prospect with strong potential on defensive. That's exactly what they plan on doing this summer.

Anthony, 34, opted into the final year of his contract in June, and is set to make $27.9 million next season. That decision will save OKC a bundle of cash-possibly over $100 million.

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.
