Despite the Singapore deal, North Korea’s up to its old tricks
MP Mark Pritchard, a member of All-Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea, said: 'The Americans will not be taken for fools. US President Donald Trump , right, meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sentosa Island in Singapore.


According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets' initial offer was around the ballpark of $85 to $90 million depending on incentives.

Those rumours picked up steam Tuesday when Wojnarowski reported that Anthony was given permission by the Thunder to meet with prospective teams. The money works on a hypothetical Dion Waiters + James Johnson for Melo deal, which would give the Heat a massive expiring contract ahead of the 2019 offseason while also cutting ties with assets that may not be in their long-term plans. Anthony is now in the twilight of his career, barely shooting 40 percent from the field with the Thunder previous year and averaging a career low in points while putting in his usual effort, or lack thereof, on defense. Those teams are both over the salary cap and will likely wait for Anthony to be traded to another team, then waived, so he can then be signed to the veteran's minimum or the $5.3 million taxpayer mid-level exception.

Clint Capela played an important role in the Houston Rockets coming within one win of reaching the 2018 NBA Finals, but it's still uncertain whether he'll return to the Western Conference's No. 1 seed from last season. Although the Rockets hold a significant advantage in Las Vegas.
