Carmelo Anthony will part ways with the Houston Rockets, ending a 10-game stop in Houston, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Anthony left the team last Friday after learning his role would be heavily reduced.
Carmelo Anthony’s brief stop with the Houston Rockets is over, league sources tell ESPN. Anthony will part ways with team, although there are no immediate plans to place 10-time All-Star on waivers. Team announcement is expected before Rockets play Golden State tonight.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 15, 2018
For now, Anthony will remain on the Rockets roster, but will not rejoin the team, sources said. Anthony’s wisest course of action could be exercising patience and allowing changes in league rosters – through trades, injuries, team needs --- to create more playing options for him. https://t.co/L5aC5Ueah0— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 15, 2018
Wojnarowski notes that Melo’s representatives will continue to work to find him a new landing spot as Houston is not immediately waiving him.
Kevin O’Connor and Bill Simmons of The Ringer have floated the Portland Trail Blazers as a possible Melo destination. And we have covered the Melo angle for the Blazers on multiple occasions here at Blazer’s Edge.
Since Melo’s departure is official(ish), we’ll ask: Do you want the Blazers to take a chance on him? Let us know in the comments.
