Today, the Houston Rockets’ officially announced the signing of 10-time All-Star and 2013’s NBA scoring champion Carmelo Anthony. Anthony will now be joining the reigning MVP James Harden and respected floor general Chris Paul.

The 34-year-old baller is turning the page to the next chapter in his NBA career. This previous season, Melo played alongside Russell Westbrook and Paul George on the Oklahoma City Thunder where he averaged 16.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. Following the season’s end, rumors circulated of Carmelo wanting to test the free agency market in hopes of joining the Houston Rockets. Interestingly, he would end up with the Atlanta Hawks as a part of a three-team trade. Fortunately, he would then receive a contract buyout – making him a free agent – where he’d be paid the remaining $25.4 million USD of his original 2018-2019 salary.

Take a look at the official announcements below and let us know if you think this Houston Rockets squad will make the NBA Finals this season.
