The Rockets should sign Carmelo Anthony, but only under these conditions


He played one season for the Rockets and was an important piece in the Rockets' defensive resurgence.

Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder are working on parting ways.

Clint Capela is not happy with the Rockets. If an injury hadn't taken Paul out before the culmination of the series, it may have very well been the Rockets facing LeBron James and the Cavaliers in the Finals instead of the Warriors. The native of Cameroon spent the 2015-16 and 16-17 seasons with the Clips before signing with the Rockets as a free agent prior to this past season.

Last week, The Oklahoman confirmed another Wojnarowski report that the Thunder has intentions of trying to find a suitable trade for Anthony before the end of the summer.

Houston re-signed star point guard Chris Paul to a four-year contract worth a reported $160 million earlier this month.

Anthony would be joining a team that is just on the cusp of winning an National Basketball Association championship, and although he is 34-years old, he is about as experienced as they come.

But, hey, maybe he could have been the one to make a key 3-pointer when the Rockets missed 27 straight in Game 7... Could Melo be headed to the Houston Rockets?
