There is no timetable for when Anthony will be made available, but it seems clear that once he is available, the Heat will be one of the teams strongly pursuing him.

Despite a poor year in Oklahoma City, during which the four-time Olympic gold medallist nearly became unplayable during the Thunder's miserable first-round playoff loss to the Utah Jazz, there are no shortage of teams reportedly interested in acquiring him.

The Houston Rockets re-signed free-agent swingman Gerald Green to a one-year, $2.4 million contract.

News emerged last week stating that the Oklahoma City Thunder were reportedly moving towards parting ways with Carmelo Anthony this summer.

Miami could be looking to move long-term salaries like James Johnson or Dion Waiters, but like Houston, don't benefit by trading for Anthony directly and giving up assets. "Oklahoma City needs Anthony's permission to waive his no-trade clause, which he has done to facilitate his exit, league sources said".

Rockets point guard Chris Paul has been "advocating" the club add Anthony according to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz.

Clint Capela is a restricted free agent, but the expectation is that he will eventually reach a deal to keep him in Houston. Swapping Melo for a player (s) of lesser value would also create a trade exception for OKC.

Green, 32, has averaged 9.8 points and 19.7 minutes in 585 regular-season games.

The Heat have regularly been reported to have interest in Anthony, with particular interest coming from head coach Erik Spoelstra.

Anthony expressed to the Thunder at the end of the team's playoff run he would not accept a bench role.
