The Rockets are aggressively working to find a trade for Carmelo Anthony before Monday's 5 p.m. ET deadline to clear a roster spot for newly acquired Kenneth Faried according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Rockets don't want to release James Nunnally, who they just signed to a 10-day deal and made somewhat hefty promises to in order to pluck him from overseas. The Rockets could hold off on signing Faried to find a deal, reported Woj, which might give a bit of texture to how valuable they believe he is, though as Woj also reported they need help in the frontcourt asap.
