Trail Blazers want Carmelo Anthony for themselves

However, it looks like the Houston Rockets front office is determined to land Carmelo Anthony in the hopes of pairing him up with NBA MVP runner-up James Harden. Paul George and Jimmy Butler were both in the rumor mill for months and both have now joined new teams.

In his latest Instagram post, McCollum backed up his team's desire to be included on the teams for which Melo is willing to waive his no-trade clause.

The two destinations that a Melo deal has been discussed with is the Cleveland Cavaliers and Houston Rockets. Now there's a third team being mentioned: the Portland #Trail Blazers.

Houston and NY were reportedly trying to get at least one other team, but probably two, to help get a trade done for Carmelo Anthony, and it is now reportedly known who they were trying to get to help them get that deal done.

According to Wojnarowski, one of the reasons that the trade talks halted is due to the Knicks not being happy in what they would be able to get from either of those teams in return for their All-Star forward.

Instead, it's being reported that the Trail Blazers wanted to bring Carmelo Anthony to their roster. According to Ian Begley of ESPN, "people around Anthony earlier this week said he was ready to go to Houston".

Clearly, this move would provide a major advantage for the Portland Trail Blazers.

The addition of Anthony to the roster would give the Trail Blazers one of the most dynamic scoring tandems in all of the National Basketball Association assuming Portland would not have to part ways with either C.J. McCollum or Damian Lillard.

Anthony would bring in a third scoring option and really open things up for the other scorers on the floor.
