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

Kevin Love

Stretching his contract, which involves buying out a player by paying half the amount of the deal over double the amount of time plus a year, could save the Thunder $107 million in salary and luxury tax, according to Wojnarowski.

The Rockets are hunting for a replacement for Trevor Ariza, who signed a one-year $15m deal with the Phoenix Suns during free agency, and hope Anthony could be the man to step in.

Mbah a Moute has been a defensive stalwart throughout his 10-year career, averaging almost a steal per game throughout his tenure in the league and eclipsing that mark three of the past four seasons.

Mbah a Moute spent the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons with the Clippers before joining the Rockets last season.

The moves add to uncertainty for the Rockets around Swiss free agent center Clint Capela, who has not agreed to a new deal. He may be even more motivated to do that if reaches a buyout agreement with the Thunder.

Acquiring Anthony on a veteran's minimum contract is still a possibility, but one that will prove all that much more hard if they also plan to bring him off the bench - as two concessions are much more than he'd be willing to make. He's averaged 24.1 points over 15 National Basketball Association seasons, but winning in the postseason has been one thing Anthony has always struggled to do. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the signing Monday.

Capela has started 133 games over the last two seasons for Houston.
