  • Rockets Sign Carmelo Anthony To 1 Year $2.4 Million

    Carmelo Anthony, Rockets Reportedly Agree to Contract After Hawks Buyout

    Carmelo Anthony is moving on to his fourth franchise in less than a year.

    Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reported Anthony has agreed to terms on a contract with the Houston Rockets. According to Charania, Anthony told the Rockets he would sign with them after returning from Africa.

    This comes after the Atlanta Hawks bought him out following a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this summer.

    After the New York Knicks traded him last offseason, Anthony's time in OKC as part of a big three (with Russell Westbrook and Paul George) did not go as planned.

    He averaged career-lows in points (16.2), shooting percentage (40.4 percent), free-throw percentage (76.7 percent) and assists (1.3). His 5.8 rebounds per game were his lowest since 2005-06, his third year in the league.

    In a first-round loss to the Utah Jazz, the 6'8", 240-pound forward averaged just 11.8 points on 37.5-percent shooting (including 21.4 percent from beyond the arc), 5.7 rebounds and 0.3 assists in 32.3 minutes.
