The Houston Rockets will pursue Carmelo Anthony this offseason, according to a source.

The Rockets won't have enough cap space to sign Anthony outright, but a sign-and-trade could be an option.

The source said that the Rockets inquired about the availability of Anthony at the deadline. The Knicks have held discussions previously with the Rockets on Omer Asik.

The Knicks could deal Asik and/or Jeremy Lin for Anthony while maintaining cap space for 2015.

With no state income taxes in Texas, Anthony could take a reduced salary while not as severely impacting his take home pay.
