According to updated odds posted Tuesday by MyBookie (via OddsShark), the Rockets are +120 (bet $100 to win $120) favorites to sign Anthony. The Los Angeles Lakers are locked in as the second choice at +350, while the Miami Heat rank third at +500.
Earlier Tuesday, ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Thunder have granted Anthony permission to speak with prospective suitors since it appears "inevitable" he will not be with the team next season.
According to Wojnarowski, the Thunder plan to either trade Anthony, at which point he will be waived, or waive him through the league's stretch provision.
"Anthony's contract makes trade possibilities less likely than simply executing the NBA's waive and stretch provision on his contract, which would save the Thunder $107 million in luxury tax and salary," he wrote. "That would spread his salary-cap hit equally at $9.3 million over three years."
Thus far, Anthony has met with the Rockets and Heat.
According to the New York Times' Marc Stein, "it would be a full-fledged surprise if he doesn't wind up with the Rockets."
