Talks between the Knicks and Rockets to send Carmelo Anthony to Houston are expected to heat up now that New York has acquired Tim Hardaway Jr., ESPN.com reports.
Many of the pieces appear to be in place for the trade to happen. According to the report, the Rockets want Anthony; Melo is willing to waive his no-trade clause to play with Chris Paul and James Harden; and the Knicks do not envision Anthony and Hardaway being on the court together.

The play occurred when Fultz tried to defend Jabari Brown driving to the lane, causing him to land awkwardly on his left ankle.

Fultz was later confirmed to have sprained his ankle on the ESPN telecast after receiving X-rays. The report was confirmed by the 76ers. He did not return to the game.
Fultz’s injury has immediately drawn comparisons to the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 NBA Draft, Ben Simmons, who fractured his foot in September and missed the entirety of the 2016-17 season. Joel Embiid also missed time with injuries in the 2016-17 season.
All in all, the 76ers have no manner of luck at all — but it seems they have avoided disaster.
If Scott can return to his previous level of play, this is an excellent minimum deal. Over nearly 4,000 minutes from 2013-2016, he averaged right around 17 points and seven rebounds per 36 minutes while hitting 3s at a reasonable clip.
Still, his 2016-17 was a disaster as he dealt with felony drug charges that were dismissed, and that’s why he’s on a minimum. This is probably his last shot at an NBA career. It’s a no-risk, low-reward situation if he can play a role as an eighth or ninth man on a team hoping to make a run. We’ll see.
