Houston would trade almost anything not named Dwight Howard and James Harden to get at Anthony and they would go all in on a contract too. There has been talk that Houston has offered up Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin in a “give away” trade that could include their draft pick in the first round or a roster player like Terrence Jones to get those salaries off the books.

According to a league source, the Rockets will make a bid for Carmelo Anthony this summer, even though they probably won’t have cap space and would have to orchestrate a creative sign-and-trade. The source said Houston asked the Knicks about Anthony before February’s trade deadline. New York Post

The Knicks have held discussions with the Rockets about power forward Omer Asik. Even though Rockets president Daryl Morey is the pioneer of advanced statistics and Anthony has never fared well in some efficiency categories, Morey’s old-school instincts believe he could form a terrific Big 3 with Dwight Howard and James Harden. Rockets management also believes Anthony has made advancements in the grit department the past two seasons. New York Post

Carmelo Anthony said last week that he was very interested in re-signing this offseason as long as the Knicks showed him a strong plan to become a title contender again. Making a big splash prior to the trade deadline would have been one way to impress Anthony. A source familiar with the circumstances said New York was "close" to a deal that would have brought a much-needed point guard Darren Collison and forward Matt Barnes in exchange for point guard Raymond Felton and shooting guard Iman Shumpert. But it didn't happen. The Knicks' brass might have to work some magic on draft night to impress Anthony before free agency begins. Yahoo! Sports

I'm told there's almost no chance Carmelo Anthony gets traded. (I would write zero, but you should never say zero when your team is run by James Dolan.) ESPN.com

The Knicks will want Anthony's stamp of approval, because you can bet that they won't do anything that their star forward would object to as he approaches free agency in just five more months. "I'm pretty sure they would bring it to me and keep me up to date about what's going on,” Carmelo Anthony said before the morning shootaround for the Knicks' game here against the Memphis Grizzlies. "I'm pretty sure they'll keep me informed about what's about to happen or what's going to happen. But as far as making decisions and things like that, that's their job.” New York Daily News

According to Anthony, he had not been contacted by Dolan or Mills about a deal being imminent for Teague or anyone else who might be able to provide an upgrade to the playmaking position or other spots on the court. "It's Tuesday and I haven't heard anything as far as trades or anything else,” he said. "As of today, nothing is happening, I haven't heard anything. So we plan on moving forward.” New York Daily News

But even with the Feb. 20 trade deadline and his summertime free agency looming —and Mike Woodson’s job status possibly on the line — Anthony insisted that such topics won’t be discussed this weekend as much as most observers would believe. “We don’t have time to talk like that. You guys are going to be there. We don’t have time to just sit down and relax,” Anthony said. “I think All-Star weekend is just a time where you can relax, decompress, kind of reflect on the first half of the season and kind of gear up for the second half of the season. As far as recruiting and things like that, that never happens. New York Daily News
