He played 10 games with Houston this season before the team moved off of him.
If so, that would mean that Melo could hit the open market sooner rather than later. A week earlier, the Hawks had traded Dennis Schröder to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Anthony, Justin Anderson and a lottery-protected 2022 first-round pick.
The bottom line, one way or another, the two sides will likely go their separate ways. Houston also was much better with Anthony off the court than on it. We explore three possible landing spots that would make the most sense.

According to worldwide cricket rules an umpire can dock five runs if he feels the batsman ran a short run deliberately. De Silva kept his calm after losing Karunaratne and raised his fifty with a boundary off Stokes.

The Rockets hoped the number three pick of the 2003 draft would add a threat from beyond the arc to an offense that relied heavily on Chris Paul and James Harden last season and that had lost Trevor Ariza in the summer. But Indiana is ranked just 24th in scoring (105.7 points per game), so Anthony, who has averaged 13.4 points per game this season, could perhaps provide a scoring lift. With the exception of the rebounds category, all the other figures are career-lows.
Anthony will not play in Tuesday night's game against the Denver Nuggets. "But some guys can do it and some can't", MacMullan said.
