Houston Rockets to part ways with Carmelo Anthony

Houston Rockets to part ways with Carmelo Anthony

While Anthony won't be waived at this time, the Rockets will continue working on a resolution.

It was only a three-game National Basketball Association slate on Thursday night, but it was highlighted by one marquee matchup as the Golden State Warriors were blown out by the Houston Rockets in a Western Conference Finals rematch.

The Rockets won a league-leading 65 games last season behind a record-setting offense, but they have sputtered in the early going of this campaign. "He's a great guy, great teammate", Harden said. Green had five rebounds, five assists, five turnovers and no points in the 107-86 defeat, and after the game, he told reporters, "If those emotions are what caused us to lose [Thursday night], then my bad".

Anthony, selected third overall by Denver in the 2003 NBA Draft, signed with Houston as a free agent this year with the aim of contending for a title. "And the way we play probably wasn't conducive to his game and he was trying to make the necessary sacrifices and it wasn't fair to him as a Hall of Fame player to play in a way that wasn't good for him, wasn't good for us".
