Carmelo Anthony Odds: Rockets, Lakers, Heat Top Betting Odds to Sign SF

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

Clippers bolster roster with a flurry of signings including old and new faces

Anthony is soon to be a free agent if the Thunder can't guarantee a trade.

Despite a poor year in Oklahoma City, during which the four-time Olympic gold medallist nearly became unplayable during the Thunder's miserable first-round playoff loss to the Utah Jazz, there are no shortage of teams reportedly interested in acquiring him.

Both the Rockets and Miami Heat were among teams that met with Anthony and his camp.

Wojnarowski also reports that Oklahoma City is working on trades for the the 34-year-old.

Free agent forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute has signed a one-year deal to play with the Los Angeles Clippers.

A league source confirmed the meeting.

There you have it.

For a team that already operated with a short bench in the postseason, the departures of Ariza and Mbah A Moute figure to hurt their depth even more and will force them to search elsewhere for help on the wing and in the frontcourt. The Sacramento Kings have salary cap space and signed Zach LaVine to an offer sheet, but the Chicago Bulls matched it. Remember, the Thunder still has until the end of the season to shave down a tax bill approaching $150 million. Considering the ball-dominant players that he played alongside last season, Anthony's numbers would likely improve on a Miami roster that has a plethora of solid contributors, but few fully-fledged stars. The Heat's interest in Anthony seems to indicate their confidence in his ability to regain his form as an elite shooter. This chapter should come to its unceremonious ending in short order.
