The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets have returned to the negotiation table on a deal centered upon Carmelo Anthony. The two teams are seeking a third party to help facilitate a trade.

Anthony will only waive his no-trade clause for the Rockets and refuses to expand his list.

The Rockets are looking to send out Ryan Anderson in a trade but his $60 million owed over three years has been a stumbling block.

The Knicks are willing to begin training camp with Anthony still on the roster.

The Portland Trail Blazers remain interested in trading for Anthony as well.
