When Carmelo Anthony becomes a free agent, Houston will be waiting.

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Oklahoma City Thunder looks on during the game against the Utah Jazz in Game Four of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 23, 2018 at vivint.SmartHome Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Rockets have lost two key perimeter players in Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute in free agency, but it appears they're targeting Anthony as a replacement, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Mbah A Moute had a one-year deal last year with the Rockets worth $2.1 million. He may be even more motivated to do that if reaches a buyout agreement with the Thunder. The 31-year-old forward played in 61 regular season games, averaging 7.5 points and at least one steal a game. The Miami Heat are also reportedly interested in adding Anthony.

Mbah a Moute spent the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons with the Clippers before joining the Rockets last season. He's averaged 24.1 points over 15 National Basketball Association seasons, but winning in the postseason has been one thing Anthony has always struggled to do.

The Clippers on Monday also officially announced the re-signing of guard Avery Bradley, whose deal was reported last week as a two-year, $25 million pact. The former UCLA standout started a career-high 76 games in his final year in Los Angeles before transitioning back to a role player off the bench during Houston's campaign to the Western Conference Finals.
