Carmelo Anthony trade rumors are flying around everywhere, and Houston is one of Anthony’s two preferred destinations. Here are three trade scenarios that can land Melo in H-Town.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks cannot imagine Carmelo Anthony remaining on the roster at the start of the season. New York is desperate to get rid of Carmelo, and after Phil Jackson‘s constant criticisms, Melo’s trade value has diminished.
