The move comes after free-agent forward Luc Mbah a Moute agreed to a one-year, $4.3 million deal with the LA Clippers, league sources told ESPN.

The Clippers are paying Mbah a Moute the balance of their midlevel exception, bringing him back to the franchise after a season away with the Rockets. 

The Thunder could waive and stretch Anthony’s $27.9 million salary, saving the franchise $107 million in salary and tax, within the next seven to 10 days if they are unable to find a trade partner, league sources said.

The Rockets will be a premium consideration for Anthony, along with the Miami Heat, league sources said.
