  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    Carmelo Anthony not ruling out a reunion with the Knicks saying, "I have to see what's going on," with a smile.

    Whether Melo returns to the Knicks or any team for that matter, is ultimately not up to him after playing in just ten games this past season. Anthony's chances of resurfacing will improve if he is willing to come off the bench.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    Carmelo Anthony played in 10 games for the Houston Rockets in 2018/19 before being traded to and waived by the Bulls.

    Anthony did not end up getting picked up by a team and will now make for an interesting off-season story line relative to how bad he is. In his ten games, he hovered around top-200 value in 8 and 9-cat, but he obviously wasn't much of a factor in fantasy leagues this season.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers have paused their talks with Carmelo Anthony for the moment.

    There have been rumors that the Lakers were interested in signing Anthony for the rest of the season, but it seems that the Lakers have bigger concerns at the moment after losing four out of their last five games. Anthony has close ties with LeBron James and this still makes the most likely scenario for Anthony to land on a team this season, but for this to happen the Lakers would have to turn their horrid play around and look to make playoffs.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    The Lakers have an open roster spot after Thursday's trade of Ivica Zubac and Michael Beasley for Mike Muscala and will seriously consider using it to sign Carmelo Anthony.

    This is coming from multiple outlets, so Anthony has a fairly high probability of ending up with the Lakers. It's going to be a strange fit to be sure but it's been rumored for quite some time now. There's unlikely to be much fantasy appeal if Melo ends up in L.A., though only if you're hunting for points in a deep league. That said, the Lakers will examine the full buyout market and make their decision from there. There will certainly be more effective players available but that hasn't stopped the Lakers before.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls waived Carmelo Anthony on Friday.

    This was always on the cards for Melo, who will be looking for a new team (again). We have to assume he'll find a job somewhere, it just like won't be a fantasy-relevant spot.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    The Carmelo Anthony trade has been finalized and also sees the Rockets sending the draft rights to Jon Diebler and $1.56 million to the Bulls in exchange for the draft rights to Tadija Dragicevic.

    There's no fantasy impact here so let's take a spin through the two guys you probably haven't heard of before. Diebler, now 30, was the 51st overall pick in the 2011 draft after playing four years at Ohio State. He's since spent time playing in Greece and Turkey and currently plays for Darussafaka. Dragicevic is a 32-year-old forward who was drafted 53rd overall in 2008. Born in Serbia, he has played in Italy, Ukraine, France, Greece and Turkey. He was originally drafted by the Jazz but has seen his draft rights traded to the Mavs, Bulls and now Rockets.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    Carmelo Anthony will not play a game for the Bulls and will be released once today's trade between the Bulls and Rockets becomes official.

    As expected. Anthony will get to pick his destination once he clears waivers, which he certainly will. There's no sense in forecasting his fantasy outlook until he lands on a roster.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Chicago Bulls

    Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the Bulls.

    Houston will also be sending cash to the Bulls in this deal. It'd be a shock if Melo suited up for Chicago at all and he's still not a fantasy option. Perhaps Houston will sign James Nunnally again now that Anthony's departure has opened up an extra roster spot. Nunnally had to be waived to make room for Kenneth Faried and this trade won't be official until tomorrow.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    The Rockets are aggressively working to find a trade for Carmelo Anthony before Monday's 5 p.m. ET deadline to clear a roster spot for newly acquired Kenneth Faried according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The Rockets don't want to release James Nunnally, who they just signed to a 10-day deal and made somewhat hefty promises to in order to pluck him from overseas. The Rockets could hold off on signing Faried to find a deal, reported Woj, which might give a bit of texture to how valuable they believe he is, though as Woj also reported they need help in the frontcourt asap.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    The Sixers, Lakers and Hornets have resisted the idea to sign Carmelo Anthony thus far.

    Houston has some incentive to keep trying to find a trade taker for Melo, since shedding his $2.4 million veteran minimum contract will result in a luxury-tax savings. LeBron James has vocally pushed back against the notion that Melo’s presence disrupted the Rockets, believing Anthony can still contribute to a team. After having dinner with him on Monday, James said that would like to play with his longtime friend, sending another message to Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka. LeBron looked frustrated after last night’s loss to the Nets and he might be putting more pressure to the Lakers in order to execute a deal but nothing is imminent as of now.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    Per a report on Friday, the Lakers have no interest in signing Carmelo Anthony.

    Well this is a relief. Anthony is probably cooked. It's hard to fathom that one of the best scorers of all time would have this much trouble finding a job, but his playstyle is no longer suitable for the modern NBA and he hasn't adjusted accordingly. There's still thought he'll get signed at some point. Fantasy owners need not wait.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    LeBron James has expressed interest in having Carmelo Anthony join the Lakers as of a Thursday report.

    James and Carmelo Anthony have a relationship dating back a long time and James believes that Melo still has the game to contribute to an NBA team. It's not a formal request, but even if the Lakers make a play it's hard to imagine that Melo has fantasy value.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    Carmelo Anthony and the Rockets have agreed to part ways, and the team is expected to make an announcement before Thursday night's game against the Warriors.

    There are reportedly no plans to place Anthony on waivers yet but we can't imagine he has much trade value. He'll stay away from the team and wait for opportunities to arrive elsewhere around the league. Melo predictably stuck out like a sore thumb in Houston and was unsatisfied with his role on the team. He could be facing a very frosty market, as his unwillingness to take on a smaller role even in the late stages of his career will make him tough to add to most rosters.

  • Carmelo Anthony - F - Houston Rockets

    Carmelo Anthony is currently listed as out for Thursday's game because of an illness.

    Melo may or may not even be with the team. His days with the Rockets are numbered.
