Carmelo Anthony, Rockets expected to part ways

Carmelo Anthony's tenure with the Rockets "will soon be ending", according to the New York Times.

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Houston Rockets warms up before the game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on October 20, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. "On that one, I have no answer for you right now". The Rockets are now a far cry from the team that came within a game of reaching the NBA Finals and ousting the Golden State Warriors.

Anthony's unhappiness can't be entirely disconnected to a rough start for the Rockets, as they fell to 4-7 after losing to San Antonio on Saturday. Clark has become a favorite of D'Antoni, earning the bulk of the minutes that were expected to go to Anthony. He accused the Rockets of making Anthony the "fall guy" for their slow start.

Carmelo has been unable to make a mark for the Rockets this year, and despite taking more 3-pointers he has often reverted to taking a one-dribble, one-step jumper just inside the arc.

For their part, the Rockets have so far denied this report from Marc Stein. I'm trying to win a game", D'Antoni said, adding: "You need to talk to Daryl. "Yeah, that's. I'm sure you can address that with Daryl".

When asked about Anthony's status moving forward, D'Antoni defended his player and insisted nothing will change.

"Melo's been great. What he's been doing is backing up the 4".

Has a nice ring to it.
