The Thunder could save close to $100 million in luxury tax by waiving Anthony, then stretching his remaining $27.9 million over three seasons (the Thunder has until August 31 to stretch his contract).

While Anthony struggled with the Thunder last season, he still showed flashes of the elite shooting ability that he has enjoyed throughout his career.

The Rockets lost forwards Luc Mbah a Moute to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Clippers and Trevor Ariza to a one-year agreement with the Phoenix Suns.

In fact, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle brings word that the first offer made by the Rockets on July 1 was for a lower annual value than many might have anticipated.


A league source confirmed the meeting. ESPN's Dave McMenamin reported Paul and head coach Mike D'Antoni talked with Anthony's camp over the weekend.

But the Heat has become a consideration because Anthony is said to like South Florida and the Heat organization and because of his friendship with Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who remains an unsigned free agent. It's far from a sure thing, but it looks like the Rockets are making a push to land the veteran sharpshooter. The 31-year-old forward played in 61 regular season games, averaging 7.5 points and at least one steal a game. He worked his way from the G League up to Denver's roster in December and went on to average 4.2 points and 3.3 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game in 39 appearances (five starts).

If he joined the Heat, he could slot in at power forward in a frontcourt with Hassan Whiteside and Josh Richardson.
