Carmelo Anthony

Along with the Houston Rockets, you can add the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat as teams interested in acquiring Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony.

In case you have been living under a rock, or earning your wage while shoveling mud or something noble, a report emerged on Friday, laying claim that the Thunder and Carmelo Anthony are about to split up this summer.

The news was broken by ESPN, who also relayed information about the Rockets, Thunder and Heat.

“The Houston Rockets, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers are among multiple teams expected to express interest in Anthony, sources tell ESPN.”

ClutchPoints also gave you some other information:

The Houston Rockets have shown interest in acquiring Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times. The Thunder will reportedly look for a way to part ways with the perennial scorer throughout this summer.

Here’s also a link to a relevant column, explaining the how/why the Thunder can dump Melo to whatever NBA franchise.

Obviously, a lot of teams will be interested in obtaining Melo whenever he’s fully available, but there’s still a chance OKC will try to trade him, which might hinder some teams’ chances at landing the bucket-making veteran.
