According to Shams Charania, the Hawks plan on releasing Carmelo Anthony later in the day.
Over the weekend the players involved in the three-team trade have went through their physicals. Melo can now sign wherever he chooses, but the Rockets are still the clear frontrunners and look to have a deal in place for Anthony. Last season Melo averaged a career-low 16.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists playing with the Thunder. It looks like Melo may have lost a step, but it is hard to imagine he has a worst statistical season after only shooting 40 percent from the floor last season
