Rockets Have Trade Plans to Challenge Golden State for Championship — NBA Rumors

Rockets Have Trade Plans to Challenge Golden State for Championship — NBA Rumors

They've replace Irving with Isaiah Thomas and swapped Griffin with Koby Altman, who appears to be a very competent manager.

The deal would give the Thunder a "big three" of Anthony, Russell Westbrook and Paul George.

"What I will say is that Carmelo is a professional", Perry said.

Hornacek added that Anthony's role won't change and that he will start. Since his move to New York, he's been one of the worst defenders in the league. Perry visited Anthony over the summer in Florida.

Anthony recently informed the Knicks he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause if New York could work out a deal to send him either to the Thunder or the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN reported Friday.

The interesting aspect of the interview is Beasley's intense amount of confidence in his teammates and seemingly renewed spirit.

Now that you mess with the vision, fam, let's build. To make up for this gap in space, let's see what happens when we add the expiring deal of former Knicks legend Trevor Ariza into this deal. In fact, Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum have been actively recruiting Anthony to join them in Portland.

As far as the Knicks is concerned, this is another step in their rebuilding.

"I have no hard feelings".

The career of Carmelo Anthony, and the fair reading of how he did or did not properly utilize and make good on his ridiculous basketball talents, will be cemented over the next NBA season. He averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game this past season.

The Knicks still have some ways to go before they can seriously compete for a championship, but moving Anthony was a move they desperately needed to make.

"Agility Plus Intuition Required", talked about the Knicks young core, and now it's becoming clear why Perry didn't mention Anthony. It would be a win-win for both he and the Cavs.

The Knicks' previous regime forced its own hand in trading Anthony.

.

George and Andre Roberson are two of the best defenders on Earth for specifically stifling Durant and Stephen Curry. And less than a month later, the regular season will begin, earlier than usual, with an opening night trip for the Knicks to Oklahoma City on Oct. 19.

The particulars are largely beside the point.

Maybe it's time for Melo to start fresh somewhere else. George is a free agent next summer and Anthony has a player option for this summer as well. Kanter is due $17.88 million this season with an additional $2.68 million trade kicker, putting him at a cap hit of $20.5 million. Remember: Part of that was a salary cap/luxury tax issue, and in 2017-18 the Thunder will approach a nearly $30 million luxury tax penalty.
