Rockets introduce Chris Paul at 'CP3 Day' fan event

Harden gets gold contract

Harden gets gold contract

Carmelo Anthony is reportedly still "counting" on a trade to the Houston Rockets after the New York Knicks hired Scott Perry as their new general manager and elevated Steve Mills to president.

The Chris Paul press conference was yesterday at Toyota Center. He then went on to explain that he and Paul on the floor together are "two guys always trying to make the best play". The Rockets earlier offered Ryan Anderson to New York but the Knicks turned it down because they don't want to be saddled by the power forward's three-year, $61.2 million deal.

Jokes aside, this is an interesting mix and it is one that begs a lot of questions. In his five completed seasons in Houston, James Harden has earned more than $76.5 million from the Rockets. He is said to be dismayed over the events of the past 24 hours. Yet Paul is an in-your-face, true alpha dog and maybe it's exactly what the Rockets do need to get them closer to the Warriors or at least let them leapfrog the Spurs as second-best in the West.

Kleber averaged 8.9 points and 5.3 rebounds a game last season with Germany's FC Bayern Munich in 37 Basketball Bundesliga (BBL) games, and averaged 9.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 17 EuroCup games.

Asked Saturday how it felt to have the league's top contract Harden replied, "It's cool". For future reference, they might open another door or 2 because there ended up being about 6000 loud and proud Rockets fans.

Reports on Friday indicated that Anthony was frustrated with the Knicks for letting the trade talks fall through, so the push from Anthony this weekend comes as little surprise.

-Houston Rockets superstar James Harden says he will be in Houston "forever" after officially signing the richest contract in NBA history.

Outside of Golden State, Portland believes the addition of a player such as Anthony would furnish it with talent and depth comparable to those of the top Western Conference contenders, league sources said. "Some people are built different".
