Carmelo Anthony’s short-lived career with the Houston Rockets is over.

Amid a week of rumors that the Rockets were ready to move on from Anthony, the team is expected to announce a parting of the ways with the embattled former All-Star before hosting the Warriors on Thursday night, sources told ESPN.

Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey today issued a statement on forward Carmelo Anthony’s future with the team.

“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.”

Melo can be claimed off waivers.

Lebron James Is Now The 5th All-Time Scorer In NBA History

Published

LeBron James moved into fifth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, climbing past Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain.

James needed 39 points to claim the fifth spot from Chamberlain. He passed Wilt with a free throw in the fourth quarter.

“When I’m able to do what I love to do, and do it at this level — and even being mentioned with the greats that have ever played this game — it just always brings me back to my hometown of Akron, [Ohio],” James told ESPN’s Dave Pasch on the telecast after the game. “And knowing where I come from, knowing how hard it was to get to this point — it’s just never being in satisfied mode. I give it all to the man above for giving me God-given abilities. I’m taking full advantage of ’em. And then my coaching staff and my teammates throughout these 16 years so far, have gotten me to this point.”

“If he stays healthy, the way he’s looking and moving, he has a chance at Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar),” Dirk Nowitzki previously told ESPN. “His numbers have been unbelievable. He doesn’t seem to slow down. The stuff he was doing last year in Year 15 was incredible. If he keeps this up, he can pass Kareem.”

Next up for Lebron is passing Jordan.

Top Four Scoring Leaders

1. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387)

2. Karl Malone (36,928)

3. Kobe Bryant (33,643)

4. Michael Jordan (32,292)
