Carmelo Anthony has made it official: he’s signing with the Rockets according to Yahoo Sports.
The 34-year-old vet will sign for $2.4 million once he returns to the states from South Africa. Anthony had unveiled a refurbished basketball court in South Africa last week.
Anthony opted in to the final year of his five-year maximum contract worth $27.9 million before free agency, but when the Oklahoma City Thunder re-signed Paul George, the franchise and Anthony elected to part ways.
Anthony averaged 16.2 points per game in 78 games with the Thunder as he spent the majority of the year adjusting to playing alongside Russell Westbrook and George.
