Carmelo Anthony verbally agreed to join the Rockets on a one-year deal. Anthony will be getting paid by the Thunder this season so he was looking to join a contender and start which Houston will be an option for at least a contender. (Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Anthony and Mike D'Antoni didn't jell so well the first time around but he won't be the option in Houston with James Harden and Chris Paul. With Trevor Ariza in Pheonix, Anthony is in line for starting SF or PF this season. He's a late-round pick.
