Rockets To Waive Carmelo Anthony Soon

If they do cut Anthony, they will owe him $2.4 million.

Clearly, the hope coming into the season was that Anthony could be that player who gives the Rockets that extra spark on offense to compete with the Warriors. But now, it sounds like Anthony will be searching for a new team very shortly, per The New York Times' Marc Stein. "He's been great with us". As Wojnarowski notes, the Rockets would be on the hook for Anthony's $2.4 million for this season if they made a decision to waive him. "He's been great with us". The 10-time All-Star and future Hall of Famer is averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds while shooting 40.5 percent from the field and 32.8 percent from beyond the arc. He's accepted every role Coach has given him - starting, off the bench, whatever it's been.

Morey said that it's "his job" to figure out how to get the team going, but that he's seen signs recently that things will soon turn around. A lot of this is on me right now. "That's a hindrance ... and we've got to fix that". If the Rockets really do move on from Anthony, will this be the end of his National Basketball Association career?

Translation - the Rockets don't think Anthony can be a key piece to help them win now. The Thunder traded Anthony last summer to the Hawks, who then bought him out.

"I feel like we have been playing better ... but the reality is we're nowhere near where we expect to be and we have high expectations and we're going to stick with those", Morey said.

The Lakers haven't had a good start defensively to the season and adding Anthony would only exacerbate their issues.
