After the shocking news that perennial All-Star point guard Chris Paul is headed to Houston after a sign-and-trade deal with the Rockets, more news has broken regarding another All-Star player possibly joining forces with Paul and Harden.
With Knicks' President Phil Jackson seemingly confirmed to be leaving the Big Apple this week, Carmelo Anthony could also be on his way out if he manages to reach a buyout deal with New York, allowing him enough time to sign with the Rockets in free agency to form yet another super team.
ESPN's Jeff Goodman reported that Rockets' GM Daryl Morey is not yet done on the trade market, looking to trade for or sign one more big name player to form a big 3 that can go toe-to-toe with the Golden State Warriors.
If Melo does, in fact, end up in Clutch City, the NBA's newest formidable trio will be formed, with Anthony most likely to carry the scoring load, just as he has done his entire career for the Nuggets and Knicks, especially when flanked by two of the best playmakers in the league today, Chris Paul and James Harden.
If Morey is able to land Carmelo, both himself and Chris Paul will finally have a shot at capturing that elusive title they have wanted for so many years.
