August 11 (The Sports Xchange) - Carmelo
Anthony could still join the Houston Rockets after all.
After initial talks between the New York Knicks and Rockets
about an Anthony trade stalled, the teams have re-engaged in
discussions to send the 10-time All-Star to the Magnolia City,
according to an ESPN report on Friday.
Anthony will only waive his no-trade clause to be dealt to the
Rockets, refusing to include more teams on his list of potential
destinations, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
LeBron James might be considering whether to bring his talents
to Los Angeles next season, and there's a chance Kyrie Irving
could be going with him. In a manner of speaking.
Irving, who asked the Cleveland Cavaliers for a trade in July
after he grew sour of playing alongside James, has his sights
set on the Los Angeles Clippers as a team he would like to play
for if traded.
"(Irving) loves L.A. and he's been working out there a lot this
summer," veteran NBA reporter Peter Vecsey of Patreon.com said.
The Los Angeles Lakers signed forward V.J. Beachem.
Terms of the deal were not released by the team, but ESPN
reports Beachem's contract is partially guaranteed.
Beachem, a former Notre Dame standout, was not selected in the
2017 NBA Draft. He averaged 14.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 36
games for the Fighting Irish last season
