The Houston Rockets have officially parted ways with Carmelo Anthony. In a statement released by the Houston Rockets, Morey says the fit the team envisioned has "not materialized."

“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” said Morey.  “Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D’Antoni gave him. The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him.”

Not only did Anthony struggle on the defensive end, he struggled offensively going only 4-20 and scoring only 10 points in his last two games as a Rocket. His agents are actively looking for new opportunities for the future Hall of Famer.
