According to the New York Daily News' Frank Isola, Anthony "is focused on getting a deal done with Houston."
That echoes a July 17 report from ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski suggesting the same.
The Rockets and Cavaliers have long been the two teams Anthony has reportedly been willing to waive his no-trade clause for, but it appears the defending Eastern Conference champions may be fading out of the picture.
According to Isola, "there is no guarantee" Anthony would waive his no-trade clause if he was being traded to "a Cavs team that didn't have Irving."
Citing league sources, ESPN.com's Ian Begley reported Friday that "some within" the Knicks front office "would be willing to include future first-round picks and Carmelo Anthony" to facilitate a deal for Irving.
But considering Anthony has veto power, it may take a convincing sell from his friend LeBron James to change his mind about a possible future with the Cavaliers.
