Clippers bring back Mbah a Moute; Rockets targeting Anthony

Clippers bring back Mbah a Moute; Rockets targeting Anthony

The Heat's pursuit of Carmelo Anthony escalated this week when the Heat received permission from Oklahoma City to meet with the 10-time All-Star forward.

Anthony has been part of a Big Three before; he spent last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, working with Russell Westbrook and Paul George. Anthony would have to approve the trade.

The Rockets are hunting for a replacement for Trevor Ariza, who signed a one-year $15m deal with the Phoenix Suns during free agency, and hope Anthony could be the man to step in.

Mbah a Moute, who had a one-year deal worth $2.1 million last season, turns 32 in September.

But Anthony has averaged 24.1 points and shot 44.9 percent in 15 National Basketball Association seasons and has been one of the NBA's premier scorers of the past 20 years. 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.

Rockets point guard Chris Paul has been "advocating" the club add Anthony according to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz.

The 34-year-old posted career lows in points (16.2 per game), shot attempts (15.0) assists (1.3) and minutes (32.1) in 78 games (all starts) last season while playing primarily power forward instead of small forward. He's averaged 24.1 points over 15 National Basketball Association seasons, but winning in the postseason has been one thing Anthony has always struggled to do.

He previously played for the Clippers for two years prior to joining the Rockets.

Recognized as a top wing defender, Bradley, 27, has averaged 12.3 points over his eight National Basketball Association seasons, the first seven of which were with the Boston Celtics.
