The folks in Houston are hoping they have a good shot to land Carmelo Anthony in free agency.
Or LeBron James, for that matter, should he somehow find Houston more appealing than remaining in Miami or returning to Cleveland.
In my opinion, 'Melo's choices rank like this: New York, Dallas, Houston/Chicago, with the latter two tied for third. Money is going to be a factor, and the fact that the Knicks can work off a starting salary of $23.2 million and offer a five-year deal is ultimately going to be to their benefit.
What will work against the Knicks is the lack of state income taxes in Texas. That is the great equalizer that the Rockets, Mavs, and even the Spurs can use to their recruiting advantage year after year after year.
More on free agency, the draft, and the Cavs' chances of getting James to return in this podcast from Sports Radio 610 in Houston with hosts Mike Meltser and Seth Payne.
