Houston rockets targeting Carmelo Anthony this summer?

Carmelo Anthony’s impending free agency has been a hot topic all season long. Now the New York Post is reporting that the Houston Rockets are planning on making a play for Melo.

According to a league source, the Rockets will make a bid for Carmelo Anthony this summer, even though they probably won’t have cap space and would have to orchestrate a creative sign-and-trade. The source said Houston asked the Knicks about Anthony before February’s trade deadline.

That’s an interesting proposition but I think the Bulls would actually be a better place for him. I’m not certain that Melo and James Harden would be a good pairing.

With all the conversation about Phil Jackson coming to Knicks, don’t expect that to impact Melo’s decision.

I don’t think it’ll have any effect on me, just as far as what I’m thinking or my decision or anything like that. Like I said, I haven’t talked to Phil yet — just to get his insight on a lot of things, what’s his plan, what’s his future plan.

Just four months until NBA Free Agency begins.
