The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have re-engaged in trade talks for Carmelo Anthony, according to EPSN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Anthony, who has a no-trade clause in his contract, has reportedly made it clear that he would only accept a trade to Houston.

The Rockets continue to look for a third-team to involve in a deal for Anthony while trying to ship out Ryan Anderson and the $60 million he’s owed for the next three years.

The Knicks are reportedly fine with starting training camp with Anthony, a 10-time all-star who grew disgruntled with the team during Phil Jackson’s tenure as president of basketball operations.

Anthony is now in favour of joining a Rockets team that features perennial all-stars in James Harden and Chris Paul, who joined Houston earlier in the summer through a sign-and-trade.
