Houston Rockets Trade Carmelo Anthony

Where he's going next remains unclear. The Bulls and Rockets made a similar trade in early January, with Chicago receiving cash to take on the contract of Michael Carter-Williams, who was then waived.

Wojnarowski added that Anthony won't play in a game for the Bulls, but it is possible the franchise "holds off on waiving him until the trade deadline". The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the trade still needs league approval.

The teams wanted to complete the deal Monday, but the league office was closed for Martin Luther King Jr. "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".

Carmelo Anthony is being traded, but he won't be with his new team for long.

"We just had to see how things worked out", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said in November when the team said it was parting ways with Anthony. Anthony averaged a career-low 13.4 points on 40 percent shooting and just 32 percent from beyond the arc, and as a negative defender he didn't bring much of anything to a struggling Rockets team. "It was good. He tried everything he could to make it work and it just didn't work out". He was the No. 3 pick in the star-studded 2003 draft class that also included No. 1 LeBron James, No. 4 Chris Bosh and No. 5 Dwyane Wade.
