  • Rockets lose Cameroon’s Mbah a Moute, seek Carmelo—report

Anthony met with officials from the Heat and Houston Rockets at the National Basketball Association summer league in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Between him and Trevor Ariza, the Rockets have lost two small forwards and two of their best defenders to free agency.

Facing a major frontline talent loss, the Rockets are hoping to add four-time US Olympian Carmelo Anthony, who is expected to have his contract bought out by Oklahoma City and become a free agent before the end of next week. Once the 34-year old forward is officially free to sign with another team, it is believed he'll draw interest from a number of teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets. A team source confirmed that the Heat is intrigued, believing he can still help a Heat offense that tied for 23rd in the National Basketball Association in scoring at 103.4 points per game.

Anthony is now a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the two sides are reportedly working on parting ways, whether through a trade, a buyout or waiving via the stretch provision.

If her best is anything like we saw Tuesday, it seems like it will be an incredibly hard task for Goerges to pull off the victory. Williams hasn't faced a seeded player yet, and she won't on Tuesday, either, instead facing 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Anthony opted into his $27.9 million contract for the 2018-19 season with the Thunder, but he's unlikely to stay due to the fact his scaled-back role with the team right now isn't what he wants.

If he chooses to sign with Houston, the Rockets can offer him their mid-level exception, which amounts to $5.3 million.

Last season was a pretty good one for the Houston Rockets.

Worryingly, his presence on the court saw the Thunder's team plus/minus rating slide to negative 14.3 during the playoffs.

After failing to secure a trade for Anthony last summer, the Rockets will have the opportunity to sign Melo again.
