Carmelo Anthony has told friends he’ll join Rockets

Carmelo Anthony has told friends he’ll join Rockets

On Thursday, the Thunder and Atlanta Hawks agreed to a trade that would send Schroder to Oklahoma City and Carmelo Anthony to Atlanta, who will reportedly waive the veteran forward.

The 34-year-old is headed to the Atlanta Hawks, where ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski revealed he will be waived, and join a team of his choosing.

Yahoo Sports' NBA expert, Shams Charania provided further detail on the multi-team trade, adding: "As part of multi-team Carmelo Anthony/Dennis Schröder deal, Atlanta's Mike Muscala will go to Philadelphia, 76ers' Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot will be traded to Oklahoma City and 76ers' Justin Anderson to Atlanta".

Anthony is expected to still receive the full $27.9 million he's owed for next season in the buyout with the Hawks.




It remains to be seen just how Anthony will fit into the system in Houston, but the two sides appear to be ready to make the pairing official in the coming days.

With that in mind, reigning league MVP James Harden has chimed in on the situation calling the potential signing of Anthony a "great acquisition" for the Rockets this offseason, according to Adam Wexler of KPRC2. Houston lost forwards Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute in free agency.

The 34-year-old is coming off his worst season in the National Basketball Association, as he posted career lows in scoring average and field goal percentage last season.

In his first and only season with the Thunder, Anthony averaged 16.2 points while shooting 40.4 percent in a reduced role in Oklahoma City.
