With Carmelo Anthony akin to a ship without a port, his representatives spent the day Monday putting together information from front offices across the NBA for a potential landing spot.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, unless a change of heart takes place, the Houston Rockets are heading toward waiving the 10-time All-Star sooner rather than later.
Anthony will not be with the team for a third consecutive game Tuesday night against the Nuggets in Denver with what the organization is terming an illness.
Wojnarowski reports front-office members and Anthony himself are both surprised at how quickly Houston is moving on from the Anthony experiment, which if ended, consisted of only 10 games.
Anthony signed a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum of $2.4 million with Houston after being bought out by the Atlanta Hawks.
If Houston decides to waive Anthony, it would be responsible for paying him the rest of the contract.
Anthony shot only 1-of-11 in a blowout loss at Oklahoma City, where he played last season, Thursday night. The Thunder traded Anthony last summer to the Hawks, who then bought him out.
On the season, the 34-year-old Anthony is averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds, while shooting only 40.5 percent from the floor, including 32.8 percent from deep and 68.2 percent from the free-throw line in 29.4 minutes per game.
