Carmelo Anthony traded to Bulls, who will waive him

Carmelo Anthony

The Houston Rockets have finally come up with a solution for parting ways with Carmelo Anthony.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Rockets have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony and cash to the Chicago Bulls.

By trading Anthony, the Rockets will save $2.6 million on their luxury tax bill. The move is likely a financially-motivated one for the Bulls, too, as they are currently 11-36 and have no use for a veteran scorer. Wojnarowski added that they are expected to waive Anthony.

The situation is similar to what happened with Anthony before he ended up with the Rockets, when he was first traded to the Atlanta Hawks and never played a game for them. Carmelo even cracked a funny joke about that when it happened.

It’s unclear how much Anthony has left in the tank. The 34-year-old appeared in just 10 games for Houston and averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. There has been speculation that he could finally end up playing alongside his good friend LeBron James.
