Mike D’Antoni not anxious about his turbulent past with Carmelo Anthony

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

"Oklahoma City needs Anthony's permission to waive his no-trade clause, which he has done to facilitate his exit, league sources said".

Some fans might not want Anthony in Houston, but the Rockets should definitely sign him under these three conditions.

He tweeted: "Carmelo Anthony's business manager, Bay Frazier, spent much of the first half of the Rockets-Warriors summer league game here in Vegas tonight sitting with a HOU contingent of Mike D'Antoni, Chris Paul, Tillman Fertitta and John Lucas II".

The move also puts the Rockets' hopes of retaining restricted free agent Clint Capela deeper into limbo.

The Rockets are among the teams that Anthony is reportedly interested in playing for, though money could be an issue. Swapping Melo for a player (s) of lesser value would also create a trade exception for OKC. The Rockets jumped from 26th in points-per-game allowed all the way up to sixth in his one season.

The Heat, who perhaps will bring back Anthony buddy Dwyane Wade, will be another strong suitor for Anthony's services, according to ESPN.

Anthony expressed to the Thunder at the end of the team's playoff run he would not accept a bench role. Despite his defensive limitations, Anthony shot 37.2 percent on catch-and-shoot 3-pointers in his lone season with the Thunder, and made a career-high 169 3-pointers.

Anthony is a natural small forward but at this stage of his career would be vulnerable defensively against some small forwards, though James Johnson could pick up some of those assignments if Anthony were to be paired with Whiteside and Johnson at times.
