Report: Carmelo Is 'Pretty Confident' He'll Be Traded To Houston

Anthony is reportedly feeling confident that a deal will get done.

Carmelo Anthony is reportedly confident a trade is going to happen soon.

ESPN's Ian Begley reported on SportsCenter that the New York Knicks' star is "pretty confident" a trade to Houston is going to happen.

Anthony has reportedly said he would be willing to waive his no-trade clause for a move to Cleveland or Houston.

"I’m told that Carmelo feels pretty confident at this point that a deal will get worked out to Houston but the teams to date are nowhere near the finish because it’s so tough for the Knicks and Rockets to get a deal together one-to-one. So it looks like there is going to have to be a third team involved. Probably Ryan Anderson is going to have to be moved on to that third team for this deal to happen. I think everyone involved wants it to happen, it’s just a matter of putting a deal together that the Knicks are amendable to and that the Rockets are amendable too," Begley said.

Anthony would be a joining a Rockets' team that now features both James Harden and Chris Paul.

Would the addition of Carmelo be enough to propel Houston into the serious-competitor category against Golden State?
