Rockets Re-sign Chris Paul

Rockets Re-sign Chris Paul

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Oklahoma City Thunder cheers from the bench in the first half during Game Three of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs against the Utah Jazz at Vivint Smart Home Arena on April 21, 2018 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Between him and Trevor Ariza, the Rockets have lost two small forwards and two of their best defenders to free agency.

In short, the Rockets would not only have to be in the luxury tax but also have a problem very similar to the Thunder and could reach $300 million in payroll in the near future if more considerable additions are made.

Undoubtedly, the Rockets' losses in the frontcourt in free agency has created a sense of urgency for Houston to patch some of those holes.

James's Los Angeles Lakers could also offer Anthony a possible way out of Oklahoma while remaining Banana Boat buddy Wade would also relish the chance to play alongside the former Denver Nugget in South Beach. Coach Mike D'Antoni said the Rockets would continue to use a switch-intensive scheme and expects to replicate the defensive success of last season, when Houston led the National Basketball Association with 65 regular-season wins.

It's no secret that Clint Capela is feeling undervalued by the Houston Rockets, who now find themselves in a conundrum, hoping to keep their improved center after doling out a whopping $160 million over four years to All-Star point guard Chris Paul.

Instead, while still trying to get a deal with Capela, the Rockets will be trying to make up for summer losses with their "run it back" plan taking a second significant hit. The Clippers' offer would have cost them roughly $16 million.

With Anthony having opted into the final year of his contract for $28 million, the Thunder are reportedly exploring options to jettison him and diminish what would be a record tax bill.

When Carmelo Anthony becomes a free agent, Houston will be waiting. Anthony is now in the twilight of his career, barely shooting 40 percent from the field with the Thunder a year ago and averaging a career low in points while putting in his usual effort, or lack thereof, on defense.
