The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have reopened talks about Carmelo Anthony's possible trade. While some teams in the NBA have secured and acquired their players, the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets are still undecided whether to push through with the Carmelo Anthony trade or not. After the fallout, both teams remained quiet while contemplating on the possible outcome of the trade. Now, it looks like both teams are re-opening the trade talks for a possible option that will benefit both teams.

According to ESPN, the Houston Rocket's eagerness to complete its big three reopened the trade talks with the New York Knicks, hoping to finally bring home Carmelo Anthony.

If the Rockets succeed, Anthony will play alongside James Harden and newly acquired Chris Paul from the Los Angeles Clippers. Meanwhile, the Knicks don't have to trade Camelo Anthony if they can't find a good deal that is worthy enough to replace him. His no-trade clause allows them to do just that after the 10-time All-Star player confirmed he is only willing to waive his no-trade clause for the Houston Rockets.

Scott Perry holds off Phil Jackson's decision

ESPN also reported that the trade talks between the two teams were on the verge of completion during Phil Jackson's time as president of the franchise. Unfortunately, things turned around after Scott Perry replaced Jackson as the franchise president; setting a totally different option for Anthony's trade.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets are not the only team interested in a Carmelo Anthony trade. The Cleveland Cavaliers also expressed its interest to trade after Kyrie Irving made his controversial request. Unfortunately for the team, Anthony is not interested, plus some other issues that the New York Knicks is not willing to abide.

During the primary stage of the trade, Carmelo seems like a willing participant, but that was before Chris Paul arrived in Houston.

Carmelo Anthony, DeMarcus Cousins rumors

Interestingly, rumors surrounded that the New Orleans Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins is also interested in recruiting Carmelo Anthony. In a twitter post by The Pelicans fan Page, Cousins noticeably liked the photo that shows him and Anthony having a light conversation during the USA team's practice for the Olympics.

If it's a subtle hint of Cousins' intentions that he sure made it known to the world.

Currently, Carmelo Anthony remains committed to the New York Knicks and all of its training camps. Other teams who expressed interest in the trade include the Portland Trailblazers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
