Could the Allen Crabbe trade clear the way for Carmelo Anthony to the Rockets?

Could the Allen Crabbe trade clear the way for Carmelo Anthony to the Rockets?

Could the Blazers be the team getting Ryan Anderson? The Portland Trail Blazers cleared a 3-year, $56.3 million contract from their books on Tuesday. The Trail Blazers sent guard Allen Crabbe to the Brooklyn Nets for forward Andrew Nicholson, and Portland plans to waive him to get under the salary cap. But what does a trade between the Trail Blazers and the Nets have to do with the Houston Rockets? A tweet from Trail Blazers broadcaster Mike Rice may have shed some light on the situation: It looks like blazers will be part of Knicks 3team trade of Carmelo. No they won't get Carmelo....

Can we please just forget all about that Melo/Ryan Anderson deal? It's dead

OK, enough is enough. Social media not only breaks stories but it perpetuates them. Ad nauseam.Such is the case with that three-team-trade rumor that would

Let’s Speculate! Would Nets take on Ryan Anderson?

Let’s Speculate! Would Nets take on Ryan Anderson?

Carmelo Anthony still wants out of New York. On Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Knicks franchise player was willing to forego an $8 million trade kicker if Steve Mills, Scott Perry et al can facilitate a move to Houston. And no, there’s no indication that Melo wants to join Damien Lillard and C.J. McCullom in Portland. The big roadblock stopping a deal, apparently, is finding a third (maybe fourth) team to take on Ryan Anderson’s massive contract. The former Net is owed $61.1 million over three years. It’s not that he’s a bad player. He’s a good player (when healthy)...

Carmelo Anthony Needs To Attack The Knicks To Force Houston Trade

Carmelo Anthony Needs To Attack The Knicks To Force Houston Trade

Subterfuge, media leaks or a quality public tantrum may be what it takes for Carmelo to find his way to the Rockets. Trade talks between the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets for 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony stalled out on Friday after Knicks owner James Dolan finally hired a new general manager. Before the new general manager and stall in negotiations rumors had a three team trade structure built out which included Anthony, Rockets power forward Ryan Anderson and the Portland Trail Blazers. Since New York announced talks were on hold there's been several differing stories of...

Trading Ryan Anderson for Maurice Harkless and Meyers Leonard a Bad Idea for Trail Blazers

Trading Ryan Anderson for Maurice Harkless and Meyers Leonard a Bad Idea for Trail Blazers

President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey would be making a mistake if he does swap Harkless and Leonard for Anderson as part of a Carmelo Anthony trade. Trade rumors are swirling around Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks. Anthony will soon be headed to the Houston Rockets in a three or four-team deal, if media sources are to be believed. The Portland Trail Blazers have been linked to the deal, with one permutation of the trade sending Maurice Harkless and Meyers Leonard to the Knicks, in exchange for Ryan Anderson from Houston. Here’s a breakdown of Anderson’s fit in...

Portland could be the most likely Rockets-Carmelo Anthony trade partner

Portland could be the most likely Rockets-Carmelo Anthony trade partner

Ryan Anderson could head west to bring Melo east. Carmelo Anthony appears destined to become a Houston Rocket in a yet-to-be-announced trade between Houston, the New York Knicks and one or two unknown teams. The 10-time All-Star has agreed to waive his no-trade clause to come to Houston, but any deal is going to be complicated and require at least three teams. Anthony is earning $26 million, and the outgoing salary required to meet NBA rules will necessitate Houston to trade Ryan Anderson, $20 million. Eric Gordon, Clint Capela and Trevor Ariza could all be used in varying combinations to...

NBA Trade Rumors: Pelicans involvement in any Carmelo Anthony deal doesn’t mean a Ryan Anderson homecoming

NBA Trade Rumors: Pelicans involvement in any Carmelo Anthony deal doesn’t mean a Ryan Anderson homecoming

There’s a reason a 4th team is necessary — both the Knicks and Pelicans are not interested in acquiring Ryan Anderson from the Rockets. Carmelo Anthony wanting to join up with Chris Paul and James Harden is yesterday’s headline, but today we learned the New Orleans Pelicans are interested in helping the Knicks and Rockets facilitate the deal. Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Houston and New York are contemplating four-team deals because the Knicks have no interest in acquiring Ryan Anderson, a necessary piece to the puzzle. According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the...

11 free agents the Rockets might sign to fill out their roster

Daryl Morey is scouring the market for veterans available on minimum deals. Here’s what you need to know. Five days into free agency, and Daryl Morey has already added Chris Paul and P.J. Tucker to the roster, and re-signed fan favorite Nene. Now, according to reports, Houston is on the radar of All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony. Any potential deal for him would require Houston trading Ryan Anderson, and the Knicks are not too keen on adding him. He essentially plays the same position as Kristaps Porzingis and his contract actually runs longer than Carmelo’s. Houston would have to...

Rockets season in review: Ryan Anderson

Rockets season in review: Ryan Anderson

It was an up-and-down year for Anderson, and now the Rockets are rumored to be shopping him. There was no way Ryan Anderson was going to live up to that contract. Last offseason, the Houston Rockets signed the stretch four to a four-year, $80 million deal, and though he was immediately thought of as a good fit for Moreyball and Mike D’Antoni, we all knew that was a lot of cheddar for an injury-prone and defensively challenged power forward. And while Anderson did manage to stay relatively healthy — his 72 games played were the second-most of his career — he had an underwhelming...

2017 Rockets Free Agency Preview

Here’s everything you need to know as the Rockets approach free agency. Just a few months ago, free agency did not look to be something to look forward to as the Rockets only had two free agents in Nene and Bobby Brown, but after the Chris Paul trade, the Rockets now only have seven guaranteed contracts going into next season: Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson, Clint Capela, and Eric Gordon. In free agency, they will look to lock up those remaining roster spots. Who will fill this roster? The Rockets can go in several different directions. The Chris Paul trade has...

NBA Free Agency 2017: Kings won’t take Ryan Anderson “for free”

NBA Free Agency 2017: Kings won’t take Ryan Anderson “for free”

Sacramento isn’t willing to take on $60 million for nothing else in return. In the wake of the big Chris Paul trade to Houston, in which Daryl Morey performed some cap wizardry to acquire multiple unguaranteed contracts to send to Los Angeles, the big sense is that the Rockets aren’t done dealing. Not all of those unguaranteed contracts went to the Clippers after all, and they could still free up a large chunk of space by dealing Ryan Anderson. That might prove to be a bit trickier however. While the Kings could theoretically take on all of Anderson’s contract, it seems they don’t...
