    The Miami Heat are expecting Carmelo Anthony to sign with the Houston Rockets after he becomes a free agent.

    This would be just another ‘sources say’ report if not for the fact that the Heat met with him in Las Vegas at Anthony’s request during NBA Summer League action more than a week ago. His proposed role and salary requirements were the major obstacles for the Heat who already have the highest payroll in the league at over $145 million (and that doesn’t include Dwyane Wade who won’t start contract negotiations until after he returns from a promotional tour in China). The story also mentioned David Aldridge’s report that Melo has been telling people for more than a week he’ll ultimately wind up in Houston.
