Allen Kee / ESPN Images(HOUSTON) — Carmelo Anthony’s time with the Houston Rockets is officially over.
The team announced on Thursday that it will be “parting ways” with the power forward.
Anthony, 34, joined the Rockets this past summer and played just 10 games with Houston this season before the team moved off of him.
“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey said in a statement. “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,” Morey added.
Houston doesn’t plan to immediately waive Anthony, sources tell ESPN, and will allow his representatives to continue exploring where the 10-time All-Star will end up.
Anthony won’t be eligible for a trade until after Dec. 15 since he signed with the Rockets as a free agent.
