Mike D’Antoni: Carmelo Anthony ‘a lot better fit’ with Rockets

Houston coach Mike D’Antoni, who walked away from the New York Knicks post because of Carmelo Anthony, now will welcome him onto his Rockets team that needs their sordid past to be, well, just that.

No more hard feelings over their infamous split in March 2012, when D’Antoni was so tired of trying to convince Anthony to play power forward that he resigned with more than a month left in the regular season. No more dissecting how it all went down, as D’Antoni has several times in recent years by sharing that it was Anthony’s ultimatum to Knicks management that inspired his exit.

“Back then, there wasn’t even analytics. I was going by my gut, and he was going by (his) gut, and it’s just, you know, styles clash. And I think now, things have changed and everybody is playing the same way. I think it’s a lot better fit and I think we have a really good chance to be really good.”

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s discussions to move nine-time All-Star guard Chris Paul to a new destination are parked, and an increasing expectation exists that he will start the season with the team, league sources tell ESPN.

Oklahoma City has been working with Paul and his representatives on finding a trade, but nothing is materializing so deep into summer free agency, sources said. Both sides believe there are benefits to Paul, 34, playing out the season with the Thunder. For now, there’s a belief that there could be more success exploring trade scenarios again after Dec. 15 — or even the completion of the 2019-20 season, league sources said.

The market expands on Dec. 15, when players who signed offseason free-agent deals can become eligible to be included in trade packages.
