Despite the firing of team president Phil Jackson early Wednesday morning, the New York Knicks are still looking to trade Carmelo Anthony instead of reaching a buyout agreement.
There hasn't been much interest in Anthony on the trade market, but the Houston Rockets have emerged as a serious suitor, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.

The Rockets have openly made Ryan Anderson available for a trade, and could include either Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza or Clint Capela in a deal. They also have all of their first-round picks from 2019 on.
Anthony averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game this past season.Back to the New York Knicks Newsfeed
