Carmelo Anthony No Longer On Houston Rockets

The alleged news comes after Carmelo signed to the Rockets for a one-year veteran's minimum deal of $2.4 million.

The 10-time All-Star is in his 16th National Basketball Association season after being drafted with the No. 3 pick in 2003 out of Syracuse. The Hawks drafted college sensation Trae Young, the diminutive, sharp-shooting guard who averaged 27.4 points per game in his lone season at Oklahoma.

Carmelo Anthony is done in Houston. But I think he's going to look at that and think: 'LeBron's there.

"Anytime you part ways with a player when things don't quite fit as a puzzle - because it's a puzzle - pieces are different for every puzzle, and this one wasn't fitting together for whatever reason", he said.

Anthony, whose time with the Knicks was full of turmoil and ended in acrimony, spent last season with the Thunder and produced the worst statistical season of his career.

"Kevin and I have spoke, we're moving forward". "He tried everything he could". I'm just gonna catch all the same c**p I caught for joining the Warriors'. "It was good. He tried everything he could to make it work and it just didn't work out".

The Rockets entered this season as arguably the biggest threat to knock off the Warriors in the Western Conference, but Houston instead owns a 6-7 record through 13 games.

Anthony sat out Houston's last three games with what the team called an illness. He scored less than 10 points in six games, including a low of 2 points on 1-for-11 shooting in a 98-80 loss to the Thunder on November 8, his last game with the Rockets.

D'Antoni expects the rest of the Rockets to handle this professionally, but knows that the move will be tough on them. We going to continue to do what we do and I'm sorry if that ruins everybody's stories. "But above all this is a business".
