According to ESPN's Tim MacMahon, the Rockets offered Capela a four-year deal in the $60 million range, but he is seeking a contract similar to Steven Adams' $100 million deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Anthony opted into the final year of his near $28m deal last month, contributing to a dangerously-inflated payroll that now sits at around $310m in OKC.
Wojnarowski also reported that Rockets small forward Luc Mbah A Moute has agreed to a one-year deal with the Clippers. The native of Cameroon spent the 2015-16 and 16-17 seasons with the Clips before signing with the Rockets as a free agent prior to this past season. He may be even more motivated to do that if reaches a buyout agreement with the Thunder.
When Carmelo Anthony becomes a free agent this offseason, he will receive interest from at least the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. 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 31-year-old averaged 7.5 points, three rebounds, and 1.2 steals in 25.6 minutes per game across 61 games (15 starts) in Houston.
"He is an elite competitor, tenacious defender, and a very effective offensive player, who fits the identity of our organization and the profile of a tough, serious player that is committed to winning".
