Rockets and Carmelo Anthony 'discussing' veteran's status going forward this season

It Sure Sounds Like the Rockets Realize Signing Carmelo Anthony Was a Huge Mistake

If he clears waivers, Anthony would be free to sign with any team that wants him, and you'd figure the National Basketball Association isn't out of such teams just yet. As Coach [Mike D'Antoni] said yesterday, his approach has been great.

Morey, who held a rare pregame news conference to address the situation with the struggling veteran forward, tepidly said he expects Anthony to play again when healthy.

Anthony has had a couple of good games, but overall he has been a poor fit for Rockets.

At this point in his career, Carmelo Anthony is just unfortunately no longer a helpful player. As Wojnarowski notes, the Rockets would be on the hook for Anthony's $2.4 million for this season if they chose to waive him.

Anthony, in 10 games this year, is averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.

In other words, Anthony may well have already played his final game for Houston.

Anthony certainly isn't the only problem for the 4-6 Rockets, who have gone from leading the National Basketball Association in scoring a year ago to ranking No. 26 entering Saturday, but it's not hard to see changing his usage as a possible path to positive change. The Rockets have a net rating of 11.1 points per 100 possessions when Anthony isn't on the floor, according to NBA.com stats. Again, that's why he's here. "I understand it he's obviously a Hall of Famer".

Well, things clearly progressed since then, because the Rockets came out on fire against the Indiana Pacers and came out victorious, looking like the 65-win team from last season.

Asked if Anthony wants to remain on the Rockets, Morey said, "I mean, you're asking the wrong guy".
