According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Carmelo Anthony is expected to sign a one-year, $2.4 million contract with the Rockets today.
Anthony is reportedly in Houston completing his physical today as well. It has been an ongoing process that is finally coming to an end. Anthony's stats saw a massive drop across the board last season when starting for the Thunder, but according to Woj, Melo is expected to come off of the bench as a scorer. It is obvious he is not the same player he once was, but it is hard to believe that Anthony cannot improve upon last season's numbers now that he is playing with two of the best playmakers in the NBA and a coach who will live or die by 3-pointers.
