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 ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Has Bombshell Carmelo Anthony News

Anthony missed Saturday's loss to the San Antonio Spurs with what the team described as an illness.

The implication from Woj seems to be that the Rockets might not want Anthony around the rest of the season.

At this point in his career, Carmelo Anthony is just unfortunately no longer a helpful player. The Rockets guard has been the snatching headlines today amid rumors that the team is considering waiving him, after the team as a whole has been experiencing a rough start to a season bloated with high expectations. A lot of this is on me right now. As Coach [Mike D'Antoni] said yesterday, his approach has been great.

"I feel like we have been playing better ... but the reality is we're nowhere near where we expect to be and we have high expectations and we're going to stick with those", Morey said.

Good friend Dwyane Wade took to Twitter to speak out in support of Anthony later Sunday.

Anthony signed a one-year, $2.4 million veterans minimum contract with Houston after agreeing to a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks before the season. It's unfair that there's all this speculation on just one player. And it sounds like they're going to try to do so without Anthony.

Anthony joined the Rockets after a tumultuous season with the Thunder where he averaged a career-low 16.2 points in 78 starts.

"We've been extremely happy with his approach", Morey said. "Everything I can tell is yes, absolutely".
