Carmelo Anthony and the Thunder are reportedly looking to part ways soon.
Depleted by the defections of Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute in free agency, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey Houston Rockets are determined to add Carmelo Anthony once the veteran forward secures his departure from the Oklahoma City Thunder, writes ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).
Rockets lose two forwards now — including Ariza — from NBA’s best regular season team. Houston is detemined to sign Carmelo Anthony once he becomes free in OKC, sources tell http://www.officialusasports.com/sports/nfl-jerseys/tampa-bay-buccaneers ESPN.
The Rockets have shown interest in James Ennis, an athletic small forward who played for Rockets associate head coach Jeff Bzdelik at Memphis; Treveon Graham, a free agent who played sparingly at Charlotte last season; and James Nunnally, an outstanding shooter with defensive ability who played in Turkey.
Kendrick Nunn, who went undrafted out of Oakland this year, led the Warriors with 18 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks. Jordan Bell had another stat-sheet-stuffing effort, posting six points, 11 boards, five assists, three blocks and two steals.
Thornwell scored a team-high 18 points for the Clippers, adding seven rebounds. First-round draft picks Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson had 13 and 12 points, respectively. Grant Jerrett and Reggie Upshaw each had 10 rebounds.
Hornets management finds itself in a delicate place with All-Star Kemba Walker, who is entering the final year of a $48 million rookie extension. Charlotte can bring back a franchise player for his final season Jurrell Casey Youth Jersey with the hope that the current team (with no flexibility to add in free agency) returns to the playoffs. That might be enough to persuade Walker to http://www.titansauthenticofficials.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JURRELL_CASEY_JERSEY.html sign a long-term pact in 2019, though it would more than double his salary and leave Charlotte even more strapped. The Hornets would also run the risk of losing Walker for nothing if they head back to the lottery.
