Knicks, Rockets still working on Carmelo trade.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the New York Knicks are working on multiple-team deals that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Houston Rockets, though no agreement is imminent at this point.
Melo has already informed the Knicks that he'd be willing to waive his no-trade clause if it meant a deal with the Cavs or Rockets, and he's reportedly "pretty confident" that he'll be teaming up with Chris Paul and James Harden in Houston next season.
Earlier this week, Rockets big man Nene shared a photo on instagram of Melo in a Rockets jersey with a caption that read, "He will look good in this uniform and I cant wait to get back on old time like in Denver with him ... do you guys remember?"
At this rate, it's becoming increasingly likely that Melo will be donning a Rockets jersey next season, the only question is how many teams will it take to facilitate the deal.
