De'Anthony Melton RumorsAll NBA Players
Kelly Iko: Source: Atlanta would be open to taking Ryan Anderson’s remaining $41 million back, but would need draft pick + one of Houston’s young guys. A package of Anderson, Melton and a 2019 first might be enough to get a deal done, but Houston is high on Melton and his upside.
Mark Berman: Mike D’Antoni: “I think James Ennis can be really good. I think people are downplaying him. Gerald Green will take another step forward. The De’Anthony Melton kid looked really good… If we’re going to beat Golden State…you gotta take some chances…I think the worst we’re going to be is great.”
Jonathan Feigen: With Capela — and presumably Anthony and Melton to follow — Rockets will have 16 players under contract with three more candidates for the two 2-way deals. Looking at about $165 million in salary and taxes, obviously a franchise high.
David Hardisty: Rockets (4-0) eliminate the Nets to advance in the Summer League tournament. Houston will play on Saturday against Cleveland. De’Anthony Melton vs. Collin Sexton will be a fun matchup to watch.
