Bryce Harper in free agency , as everyone should be he’s a star and only 26 years old, but only a few who have a legitimate shot at getting him to sign. Harper’s agent Scott Boras says their camp will be listening to every offer no matter the team, but we all know there are favorites.On Thursday, Harper’s name and number appeared alongside the White Sox logo on the screens at the United Center — home of the Chicago Bulls, owned by Jerry Reinsdorf who also owns the White Sox. The original picture has since been deleted but some Twitter users nabbed it, and it kicked off intense speculation that Harper would be signing on the South Side this winter. That speculation was further fueled when people noticed Sox pitcher Michael Kopech’s recent Instagram post about what the number “34” means to him. That’s Harper’s number. A sign that Harper is definitely going to be in a White Sox uniform next year? Probably not. It’s still far too early for Harper to have made his final decision, as if he and Boras are smart they’ll wait until the Winter Meetings at the beginning of December to be able to easily negotiate details — and possible make a final choice — in person with front office decision makers. Ranking the 50 best MLB free agents for the 2018-2019 offseasonThe Yankees are pretending they won’t make big free agency moves and it’s hilarious3 possible motivations behind the Nationals’ 10-year Youth De'Vondre Campbell Jersey , $300 million offer to Bryce HarperYes, bad teams should sign Bryce Harper and Manny MachadoBut what these two pictures probably do mean is that he’s meeting with the White Sox in person now and they put together quite the pitch for him. Whether that involves him going to the United Center himself to see his name in lights (since being outside at Guaranteed Rate Field would be kind of cold right now) or the team is simply putting together a hype video to send him in the hopes that it will sell him on Chicago’s American League team, they’re making a move.If they’re putting a pitch together, that means they probably asked Kopech if he would hypothetically give up his number (Kopech is under team control through 2025) so that if Harper asks, they could give him an answer about the number’s availability right away. None of this means anything for sure, and if a deal was close we would know. But the White Sox aren’t slacking off here, so other teams should probably step up their sales pitches while they still can. Carmelo Anthony is parting ways with the Houston Rockets just 13 games into his tenure with the franchise Youth Alex Mack Jersey , of which he played 10, the team announced on Wednesday. The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. This makes consecutive failed fits in two playoff organizations for the struggling former All-Star, and what’s next for him is wildly unclear.“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said in a statement. “Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D’Antoni gave him. The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him.”Anthony signed with the Rockets for the veteran’s minimum this summer after he was traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder and subsequently waived by the Atlanta Hawks. He immediately accepted a bench role in Houston, but the team’s come out of the gates playing poorly on both sides of the ball poorly with a 5-7 record. Part of the solution Womens Ricardo Allen Jersey , in the Rockets’ eyes, is to get rid of him. That’s where we’re at with Carmelo Anthony.There was some dispute over whether Anthony was really gone from Houston on Sunday night prior to the Rockets’ win over the Pacers. The New York Times’ Marc Stein originally reported that Melo had been told “his brief time in Houston would be ending soon,” but the team, and more directly general manager Daryl Morey denied it. Morey addressed the media and said he expected Anthony back in the rotation upon his return from an illness that kept him out of the team’s game against Indiana.That, of course, never happened.(It should also be noted that Houston looked as good as last season in the 12-point win without him, draining 20-of-46 threes.)Why are the Rockets waiving Anthony?For the obvious reason that he is no longer a good NBA player. Anthony’s had a lauded career as one of the league’s best scorers Youth Deion Jones Jersey , but there’s little trace of that form of himself left.He’s scoring a career-worst 13.4 points per game at his lowest per 100 possession rate. That means his scoring rate isn’t the lowest it’s ever been merely because he’s playing the fewest minutes of his career, he’s shooting poorly, too. He’s firing at just 40.5 percent from the field(on pace for the second-worst of his career) and a brutal 32.8 percent from 3-point range.And his defense ... is just as bad as always.Simply put, modern basketball hasn’t allowed Melo to age gracefully.What’s Anthony going to do next?That’s a tough question. After two stints in OKC and Houston gone horribly wrong, he’s going to struggle to find another interested party.Anthony might need to sit on the sidelines for a few months before someone can convince themselves he’s worth another try.And he might need to consider the idea that nobody will reach that point again.
