Well, Houston, things just got even more interesting.
With all the rumors in recent days that the Houston Rockets and New York Knicks were working on a deal to send high-scoring forward Carmelo Anthony to H-town, we now get this juicy tidbit from the NBA’s foremost authority on juicy tidbits:
Sources: Knicks, Rockets working on Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios that include four-team deals. Sides motivated but no agreement imminent.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) July 12, 2017
It’s not quite a Woj-bomb, but it is confirmation that after the all the reports from various sources that we’ve been seeing this past week that the teams are indeed trying to hammer something out.
It’s also the likely reason things are moving along rather slowly in the actual, factual developments in this trade scenario. It’s difficult enough consummating a two-team deal, and now we’re not only looking at potential three-team deals, but also now four-team deals?
Um, yeah, this might take a while.
And with Woj also saying that there’s no deal imminent, it appears we’re just going to have to be patient and trust that the Houston front office is capable of getting this thing done. If it comes to fruition, we may be looking a one serious blockbuster.
In Morey we trust.
