Well, it looks like the Carmelo Anthony era in Houston may be over before it ever really got started.
Carmelo Anthony’s tenure with the Rockets “will soon be ending,” according to the New York Times.
The Rockets have denied they are waiving Carmelo Anthony, but two sources close to the situation say Anthony has been informed that his brief time with the team will soon be ending. Anthony has been listed as "out" for Houston's game tonight against Indiana due to illness

The Rockets have denied they are waiving Anthony, but he was listed as “out” because of illness for Houston’s game against the Pacers on Sunday night. The former Knicks star has played just 10 games for the Rockets this season, averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds off the bench.
The news of Anthony’s potential departure comes after ESPN reported the Rockets were already having discussions with the former All-Star about his role on the team.
“I’m sure you can address that with [general manager Daryl Morey],” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters after his team dropped to 4-7 with a loss to the Spurs on Saturday, in which Anthony did not play. “I’m trying to win a game. You need to talk to Daryl. On that one, I have no answer for you.”
