Carmelo Anthony Signs One-Year, $2.4 Million Deal With The Houston Rockets

Carmelo Anthony has signed a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Houston Rockets on Monday. Anthony’s move to Houston has been rumored for weeks, but the veteran first had to finalize a buyout with the Hawks before signing with the Rockets. Now that Anthony officially cleared waivers earlier this month, he’s now ready to sign Houston. The 34-year-old, who averaged a career-low 16.2 points per game with the Thunder in 2017-18, will likely slot in as the Rockets’ starting power forward during the upcoming campaign.
