  • Rockets Re-sign Chris Paul

Multiple reports pegged the deal as a one-year, $2.4 million pact. Houston is said to be offering four years for about $60 million.

As for Houston, by signing Anthony as a free agent when waived, it stands to get a bargain scorer the Thunder failed to fully unlock last season. "Everybody knows in my heart where I wanted to be". Despite his defensive limitations, Anthony shot 37.2 percent on catch-and-shoot 3-pointers in his lone season with the Thunder, and made a career-high 169 3-pointers.

-The Los Angeles Lakers officially signed guard Lance Stephenson and center JaVale McGee, the team announced.

Regardless of which route Presti and the Thunder take, Wojnarowski notes that moving on from Melo is "inevitable - if not imminent", even going so far to say a resolution should be found within the next 7-10 days. He averaged 12.1 points and 22.7 minutes during his 41 games with the Rockets.

The 6-foot-8 forward has averaged 6.4 PPG and 4.1 APG throughout his career.

-The Denver Nuggets announced the signing of forward Torrey Craig to a multi-year contract.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets' initial offer was around the ballpark of $85 to $90 million depending on incentives.

Craig was a restricted free agent after receiving a qualifying offer from the Nuggets last month.

The 10-time All-Star shot 35.7 per cent on three-pointers past year, failing to increase his efficiency from the previous season, 34.7 per cent, despite playing alongside Paul George and Russell Westbrook.
