Houston Rockets to part ways with Carmelo Anthony

Adjust Comment Print

The Houston Rockets no longer want Carmelo Anthony. So we've got to fill up our cup and get our spirit back, get our energy back and we're going to. Tensions were high for much of the week, but Curry is the one who kept everyone together as they work through the rift, according to the Warriors. Though, this may come off as a little odd.

The Rockets are dealing with their own controversy, with forward Carmelo Anthony away from the team as the sides attempt to reach an understanding regarding his role moving forward.

Warrios star guard Steph Curry was injured in last week's home loss to the Bucks.

Along with Dallas Mavericks veteran and Puerto Rico captain J.J. Barea, Anthony has been one of the NBA's most outspoken and active contributors to relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

"We tried to hit a home run and it didn't work out, and he tried everything he could". He's been part of multiple charities there as well.

"I can tell you that I am extremely confident in this team's ability to get through any adversity". Anthony hasn't immediately been waived by the Rockets as they allow the 34-year-old to circumnavigate the market in an attempt to find the best fit for him.

Federation president Yum Ramos certainly hopes he gives it some thought.

Reports said Durant and several other teammates had argued with Green after he had held onto possession with the final play of regulation time, rather than pass to Durant. "He and his foundation have done a lot for Puerto Rico".

Eight of Anthony's 10 appearances for the Rockets came off the bench after he had started all 1,054 games he'd played in his first 15 National Basketball Association seasons.

Anthony has a true shooting percentage of just 51.3% this season after putting up a measly 50.3% previous year.

The Rockets then scored the first nine points after the timeout, with six from Ennis, to make it 97-65 midway through the quarter and put the game out of reach.

In its attempt to qualify for the 2018 FIBA World Cup, Puerto Rico next plays against Uruguay and Panama on November 29 and December 2, respectively.
