How Will Carmelo’s Transfer Affect “Houston”?

Posted on September 24, 2018 by Emily Kalvin

Carmelo Anthony will join the “Houston” squad soon. Before that, the player has had a reputation of being a star and now is playing for “Atlanta”. However, the club intends to expel Carmelo and even pay him a fee in advance. Then, the player will pass into the withdrawal domain where he can sign a contract with “Houston”. With it, the club offers him a minimum wage, 2.4 million dollars.

Anthony-Rockets

In the last season, team fans were very nervous about “Rockets” having some problems at the tournament. However, they’ll seem to be a trifle after the transfer of Carmelo.

You can follow the results of “Houston Rockets” on the broadcasting platform that presents all main basketball events.

New Challenges for the Team

After the transfer of Carmelo, the level of playing will be impacted by the following factors:

1.      The last season was quite successful for “Houston”. D’Antoni has especially shown himself from the best side and achieved good results. To understand the problem, remember what happened to “Knicks”. So, the club signed a contract with D’Antoni but broke it because of Carmelo who made it choose between him and the new player. Obviously, these men’s relationship will be quite complex.

2.      Another problem is how to find some space for Anthony among the famous “Rockets” Five. Carmelo isn’t going to show the game and leave the bench and wants to be a first-stringer.

3.      Besides, at this moment, the most urgent problem is the defense of the team, as it’s almost impossible to win only with the strong attacking line. It’s important to understand that Anthony is not the person who will pay much attention to this nuance. The problem is also critical because Ariza and Mbah a Moute left the team. Because of this, D’Antoni is facing a difficult task: to build the team, in which only three will defend against five.

Certainly, such a solution has some pros, one of which is the value of such a contract. In addition, Carmelo is still a true star that’s able to make brilliant throws. His participation can turn the tide of a particular match. But there’s one question: will his attendance be useful to the team in general?

We’ll know it soon. You can follow other teams’ achievements on the reliable website. So, by joining with us, fans of Miami heat will be always aware of all important events and interesting news.
