Report: Rockets will move on from Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony’s time with the Houston Rockets looks set to be very, very brief.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Rockets have informed Anthony that they intend to part ways with him, though they have denied reports that they intend to waive him.

In other words, Anthony may well have already played his final game for Houston. If so, it is a tenure that will have lasted only 10 games, averaging 13.4 points per game in a little over 29 minutes per night.

Houston’s relentless pursuit of Anthony seemed questionable at the time and looks even more ill-advised now. The Rockets have been brutal defensively all season, and Anthony provides no positives there. He doesn’t fit the roster, he’s useless to them if he’s not knocking down shots, and they haven’t been able to give him a starting job or a high volume of shots. There’s no point to keeping him around if that’s the way it’s going to be.
