Rockets reportedly determined to sign Carmelo Anthony

Luc Mbah a Moute, who averaged almost 20 minutes per game over two seasons with the Clippers before heading to the Houston Rockets, has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million deal to return to Los Angeles.

Houston is "determined to sign Carmelo Anthony once he becomes free in OKC", Wojnarowski tweeted Monday. He averaged 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals a game last season for the Rockets in his 10th National Basketball Association campaign. The native of Cameroon spent the 2015-16 and 16-17 seasons with the Clips before signing with the Rockets as a free agent prior to this past season.

That duo served as two of the Rockets' best defenders, with the ability to match up with guards and forwards in the team's switch-heavy scheme. The deal is worth $4.3 million.

The music will have an American flavor, with the "Liberty Fanfare" and the "National Emblem" chosen alongside "Amazing Grace". He will then go to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, the family home of British kings and queens for nearly 1,000 years.

Last week, The Oklahoman confirmed another Wojnarowski report that the Thunder has intentions of trying to find a suitable trade for Anthony before the end of the summer. Anthony is likely to become a free agent even if he is traded, as his new team would likely waive him.

A marriage between Anthony and the Rockets may actually work as he is good friends with Chris Paul, they need help on the wing, and, as Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals showed, they could use more firepower against the Golden State Warriors. The Miami Heat are also reportedly interested in adding Anthony. According to NBA.com, opponents shot 1.2 percent worse than their normal averages when he defended them last season.
