Star forward Carmelo Anthony has officially signed with the Houston Rockets.

Carmelo Anthony has officially signed with the Houston Rockets, according to an announcement from the team. Numerous media reports indicate Anthony signed a one-year deal worth $2.4 million.

The news comes after several weeks of waiting and moves that cleared the way for the signing. In the audio above, local sportswriter Jeff Balke discusses what adding the 15-year veteran and 10-time All-Star means for the Rockets.

Also, the Astros have lost eight straight home games after being swept by the Mariners in four games at Minute Maid Park. That means their lead in the American League West has dwindled to 2.5 games over Oakland and three games over Seattle. So, what do the Astros need to do to get back on track — or do they just need to get healthy?

Plus, the Post Oak Little League team is playing in the Little League World Series this week. UH defensive tackle Ed Oliver made the regional cover of Sports Illustrated. And the Texans won their first preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
