Anthony has a no-trade clause giving him full vetoing power over any deals. He’s essentially been able to hand-pick his next destination. He only has eyes for Houston, where he’ll join Chris Paul and James Harden on a roster that has a chance to unseat the Golden State Warriors in the west.
The Knicks under new team president Steve Mills and new general manager Scott Perry are well within their right to wait for the best deal possible before finally sending Carmelo on his way. The problem, however, is that Carmelo has limited his trade list to one team, the Rockets. So, unless Houston can find someone to take Ryan Anderson’s contract (he’s owed over $60M over the next three seasons), Carmelo is stuck in limbo.

At 33, Melo isn’t exactly in his prime but he was still able to average 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game last season. He would be another dangerous weapon in Houston’s scheme.
