Houston Rockets to part ways with Carmelo Anthony

Houston Rockets to part ways with Carmelo Anthony

It's only a three-game National Basketball Association slate on Thursday night, but it'll be highlighted by one marquee matchup as the Golden State Warriors visit the Houston Rockets in a Western Conference Finals rematch. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com first reported the news. However, Carmelo will remain on the Rockets' roster for the foreseeable future.

Anthony has not been with the team for its last three games - after missing two with an illness, the 10-time All-Star did not travel with the team on its one-game trip to face the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night.

General manager Daryl Morey issued a statement explaining how the team came to this decision.

While Anthony won't be waived at this time, the Rockets will continue working on a resolution. "Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D'Antoni gave him".

Once the Rockets put him on waivers, Anthony's $2.4 million salary could be picked up, or, if he clears, he could sign with a team of his choosing.

Multiple reports indicate that both the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat have considered the possibility of bringing in the former scoring champion, but it's unclear if Anthony's camp has had contact with either team. The Knicks sent him to the Thunder prior to the start of last season.

Curry has averaged 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds a game for the Warriors over 12 contests this season while hitting 49.2 percent of his 3-point shots.
