Heat meet with Carmelo Anthony, report says

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey announced today that the team has re-signed free agent guard/forward Gerald Green.

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

ESPN reported Monday that the Rockets are determined to sign Anthony after losing small forwards Luc Mbah a Moute and Trevor Ariza in free agency this month. "Oklahoma City needs Anthony's permission to waive his no-trade clause, which he has done to facilitate his exit, league sources said". But the Thunder traditionally doesn't like to part with assets for nothing, thus making a trade the first priority in a mutual split between Anthony and the team.

Rockets point guard Chris Paul has been "advocating" the club add Anthony according to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz.

Cohen said he had provided documents to the special counsel's office but had not been interviewed by Mueller's team, ABC said. At that meeting, campaign officials sat down with Russians who were promising dirt on Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton.

In recent days it was rumored that the Miami Heat were interested in pursuing former All-Star Carmelo Anthony this offseason.

And 33-year-old Paul, who signed a lucrative four-year $160m extension with the Rockets this summer, is believed to be pressing general manger Daryl Morey to chase Anthony's signature. The Rockets jumped from 26th in points-per-game allowed all the way up to sixth in his one season. The Lakers also have been mentioned as a possibility but reportedly have not met with Anthony.

Worryingly, his presence on the court saw the Thunder's team plus/minus rating slide to negative 14.3 during the playoffs.

For the season, Green averaged 2.7 3-pointers made in 22.7 minutes per game.
