Houston will have to create a spot on the list for Faried, who will likely be inserted into the starting lineup to replace the injured center Clint Capela. According to Wojnarowski, the team is "working aggressively to find an exchange for the exiled Carmelo Anthony before 5 p.m. on Monday.

The Rockets will continue to investigate Carmelo Anthony's exchanges to clear the spot on Kenneth Faried's list, but they do not intend to give up Melo, league sources told ESPN. The most likely scenario is the release of James Nunnally, who has a 10-day contract.
