Whenever the Oklahoma City Thunder officially part ways with Carmelo Anthony, the Houston Rockets remain the 10-time All-Star’s most likely landing spot

Per Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania, the Rockets are “strong frontrunners” to add Anthony. He is also said to be considering the Miami Heat.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Royce Young reported on July 6 that the Thunder are going to part ways with Anthony this summer, either through a trade, using the stretch provision or buying out his deal and stretching his $27.9 million salary for next season.

The Rockets, Heat and Los Angeles Lakers were cited as potential suitors for Anthony

A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Friday, July 6, 2018, that Anthony and the Thunder have mutually decided that he will not be on the team next season, though it remains unclear how that departure will actually happen.
