Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Oklahoma City Thunder looks on during the game against the Utah Jazz in Game Four of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 23, 2018 at vivint.SmartHome Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. The money works on a hypothetical Dion Waiters + James Johnson for Melo deal, which would give the Heat a massive expiring contract ahead of the 2019 offseason while also cutting ties with assets that may not be in their long-term plans.
In fact, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle brings word that the first offer made by the Rockets on July 1 was for a lower annual value than many might have anticipated.
In an offseason that was expected to be very quiet for the Heat, signing Anthony would be a fairly welcome surprise. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the signing Monday.
"Sources told ESPN that the Rockets' initial offer to Capela was in the four-year, $60 million range, with the blossoming star center seeking a deal similar to Oklahoma City Thunder big man Steven Adams' four-year, $100 million contract", MacMahon wrote.

If Anthony signed with Miami, he would be eligible to receive the $2.4 million veteran's minimum, the $3.4 million biannual exception or the $5.3 million taxypayer midlevel exception.
The Rockets are hoping to land Carmelo Anthony. The Lakers also have been mentioned as a possibility but reportedly have not met with Anthony.
The 10-time All-Star shot 35.7 per cent on three-pointers a year ago, failing to increase his efficiency from the previous season, 34.7 per cent, despite playing alongside Paul George and Russell Westbrook.
In 41 games with Houston last season, Green averaged 12.1 points and 22.7 minutes per game.
