NBA - Scoop Du Jour

The Houston Rockets were in the middle of the pack in the Western Conference last year and the New Jersey Nets were at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. But that isn't stopping Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony(notes) from putting them on his list of teams he'd consider being traded to, according to Sports Illustrated.

The New York Knicks and the Orlando Magic are teams Anthony reportedly would be interested in joining, with the Knicks being the favorite.

Anthony, 26, will be a free agent next summer. He has a three-year, $65 million extension offer on the table from the Nuggets. SI reports that "it is highly unlikely any team would risk making a trade without having Anthony agree to a simultaneous extension."
