Carmelo's representatives are reaching out to other National Basketball Association teams since the Rockets front office have been rumored to waive Anthony come Monday, a surprise to Melo and offices around the National Basketball Association on how fast the Rockets have given up on the 10-time all-star.
League sources told ESPN Anthony's representatives gathered information on Monday from various National Basketball Association front offices.
MacMullan added that 'Melo's reluctance to come off the bench-according to Basketball Reference, the former Syracuse student is the only player to have played at least 1,000 games since the 1981-82 season without ever coming off the bench-played a part in his downfall. Anthony has missed the past two games with what the Rockets have called an "illness" and he's also supposed to not play in their matchup against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday.
Carmelo Anthony is expected to leave the Houston Rockets and a number of teams have emerged as potential destinations should he either be traded, waived and claimed, or signed as a free agent. He was bought out by Atlanta, then signed with the Rockets.
Anthony's performance in the opening 10 games mirrored that of the Rockets themselves: uneven. Houston has a net rating of minus-9.0 with Anthony on the court and minus-0.2 with him on the bench, per NBA.com.
Carmelo Anthony has been a negative to the Rockets when he's been on the floor.
The Rockets finished with the league's best record at 65-17 last season, but are off to a 6-7 start this year. Only time will tell, but it doesn't look good for Anthony.
