Carmelo's time with Rockets is up

It appears Carmelo Anthony's first season with the Houston Rockets is nearing an end, and not even one month into it.

Marc Stein of The New York Times reports Anthony has been informed his brief stint with the team will soon to come to a conclusion.

With a trade unlikely, and a benching making little sense for either side, all signs point to Anthony being waived - if the Rockets do indeed make a big change.

For the season, Anthony is averaging 13.4 points on 40.5% shooting and 32.8% shooting from three.

However, ESPN reported that players and coaches think Anthony has played his last game in Houston as he isn't expected to make the trip with the team when they visit the Denver Nuggets.

It's my job, it's coach's job to figure this thing out. Houston hoped Anthony could help the Rockets, who came a win away from the NBA Finals last season, contend for a championship again. "That's a hindrance ... and we've got to fix that".

"Melo's been great here", Paul said.

"I know that we're talking about everything", he said. If the Rockets really do move on from Anthony, will this be the end of his National Basketball Association career?

"We've been extremely happy with his approach", Morey said. "So we'll see what happens".

However, Anthony and the Rockets are off to a rough start. "Every reason we've brought him here, he's followed". That's me saying that and knowing that. It's unfair that there's all this speculation on just one player.

"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. "I understand it he's obviously a Hall of Famer".
