Report: Houston Rockets Are The Favorite To Land Carmelo Anthony If His Contract Is Bought Out

Could Carmelo Anthony head to the Houston Rockets?

The NBA offseason has been a crazy ride, and it's only just begun.

After Jimmy Butler was traded to Minnesota before the NBA Draft, Chris Paul was traded to the Houston Rockets earlier today.

In what would be a surprising move, Stephen A. Smith believes Carmelo Anthony could be the next superstar to join the Rockets.

According to Smith, via Fletcher Mackel, Houston is the favorite to land Melo if the Knicks buy out his contract.

The NBA rumors are flying Wednesday morning, as the Rockets are also trying to make a play for Indiana Pacers star Paul George. We'll have to wait and see how Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks parting ways impacts Carmelo and his likelihood to stay in New York.
