Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony actively looking for another team
The Houston Rockets were thought to have added a vital piece to their championship puzzle in veteran forward Carmelo Anthony. Unfortunately, things haven’t worked out the way the team or the player had anticipated. Much like the situation with the Oklahoma City Thunder last season.
With the Rockets ready to part ways with the future Hall of Famer, Anthony has already begun looking for another team in the NBA, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

With no ongoing discussions about Carmelo Anthony rejoining the Houston Rockets, his representatives spent Monday gathering information from NBA front offices about a potential landing spot for the 10-time All-Star forward, league sources told ESPN.
Anthony will miss a third straight game tomorrow night when the Rockets face the Denver Nuggets, via ESPN.
Anthony will remain away from the Rockets for his third straight game — Tuesday night in Denver — with what the organization is calling an illness.
The Rockets came one game away from making the NBA Finals last season. However, James Harden and company have been unable to replicate their success this year. Houston has struggled out of the gate with a 5-7 record. It is currently not even in the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
It’ll be interesting to see if the departure of Anthony will have any impact on the team and whether general manager Daryl Morey may be looking to mix things up ahead of the NBA trade deadline in February.
