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

Anthony and his representatives met with Rockets and Heat officials at the site of the NBA Summer League in recent days, league sources told ESPN...

Melo recently opted in to his contract with Oklahoma City to garner $27.9 million next season.

Cameroonian free agent forward Luc Mbah a Moute has agreed to a one-year National Basketball Association deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, ESPN reported Monday, pushing the Houston Rockets to pursue Carmelo Anthony.

Luc Mbah a Moute, who averaged almost 20 minutes per game over two seasons with the Clippers before heading to the Houston Rockets, has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million deal to return to Los Angeles.

The Lakers did not disclose terms of the contracts, but multiple reports have Stephenson's deal worth $4.5 million for one year and McGee earning the league minimum for one year.

While the Irish government welcomed Friday's agreement, they said "a lot of work" remains, "particularly from the British side". Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen is the first Tory reported to have submitted a letter declaring no confidence in Theresa May .

In his lone Thunder season, Melo averaged 16.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game.

Rockets point guard Chris Paul has been "advocating" the club add Anthony according to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz. Between him and Trevor Ariza, the Rockets have lost two small forwards and two of their best defenders to free agency.

The Rockets are among the teams that Anthony is reportedly interested in playing for, though money could be an issue. It could deliver the team over $100 million in cost savings.

As Wojnarowski alludes to, the Thunder is most likely to find a trade that would send Anthony somewhere he would ultimately be waived, thus giving him the freedom to choose his preferred destination as a free agent on the open market.
