Carmelo Anthony Updates And Other Notes

Published

on

It’s been rumored for a few months now that the Knicks are going to move Carmelo Anthony and most would assume that the Rockets end up being the team that he will end up playing for this upcoming season, although Jason McIntyre of Fox Sports and the Big Lead had an interesting tweet that made it sound like if the Knicks are unable to figure out a trade to the Rockets, the Blazers could be the new trade partner and that Anthony would be willing to waive his no-trade clause to go to Portland just so he can get out of New York. Stay tuned for more news on a potential Carmelo Anthony trade this weekend as training camp begins on Monday.

The NBA has changed how calls can be made on closeouts where the defensive player doesn’t give the jumpshooter a place to land. Officials now have the ability to go to replay and hand out a flagrant or technical foul as they see fit. The other change to how officials will make calls has to do with continuation. An emphasis is being placed on making sure that shooters are actually in their upward motion of shooting and that players aren’t milking continuation.

Aaron Brooks has signed a deal with the Timberwolves to finalize their training camp roster according to Jerry Zgoda’s Twitter account. Over the course of his 9-year NBA career Brooks is averaging 10.1 points per game, so if he is able to make the final roster for the Timberwolves he could be a nice point guard for them coming off the bench.
