Carmelo Anthony’s Time With Rockets ‘Soon’ Will End

Carmelo Anthony’s Time With Rockets ‘Soon’ Will End

Speaking to reporters before the struggling Rockets (4-7) tipped off in Houston against the Indiana Pacers, Morey said the team was "evaluating everything" and that it was "extremely unfair" that Anthony has been singled out.

D'Antoni added that he's been happy with Anthony's play this season. "We're a team trying to win the championship and we're 4-7 and we're not in a good place so we're looking at everything".

If Houston does decide to waive the 10-time All-Star, he would receive his entire $2.4 million salary for the season.

Among countless comments online calling out Anthony as a has-been and blaming the Rockets' current woes nearly exclusively on him (despite evidence that the entire team, of course, is to blame), Dwayne Wade came to the defense of the fellow 2003 draftee. But from guy one to guy 15 - and I'll put myself in there; a lot of this is on me right now - we're not playing well. "He's been great with us, as coach [Mike D'Antoni] said yesterday". In the 2018-2019 season, the Houston Rockets look like a shell of themselves and it took just 10 games for the Rockets to realize that the Melo experiment is just not working. When asked about that report before Sunday night's game, Morey said: "that's inaccurate".

"I know that we're talking about everything", he said. We've just got to figure it out. "I understand it, because he's obviously a Hall of Famer, but it's unfair".

However, Anthony and the Rockets are off to a rough start.
