The New York Times had a sourced report Sunday saying Anthony has been notified that he will soon be waived.
The Philadelphia 76ers may have an interest in claiming Carmelo Anthony off waivers if the veteran forward is cut loose, as expected, by the Houston Rockets, according to a report from veteran National Basketball Association writer Chris Sheridan.
"I feel like we have been playing better ... but the reality is we're nowhere near where we expect to be and we have high expectations and we're going to stick with those", Morey said.
Head Coach Mike D'Antoni says the Rockets are playing bad collectively and that the fault does not fall exclusively on Carmelo Anthony. The Rockets' net rating is 8.8 points per 100 possessions better when Anthony sits than when he plays, according to NBA.com statistics.More news: Congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw appears with Pete Davidson on 'Saturday Night Live'

At this point in his career, Carmelo Anthony is just unfortunately no longer a helpful player. "Every reason we've brought him here, he's followed". As Coach [Mike D'Antoni] said yesterday, his approach has been great.
"It's unfair that there's all this speculation on just one person", Morey said. James, Wade, Anthony, and Chris Paul have been the closest of friends for some time now. "I understand it, because he's obviously a Hall of Famer, but it's unfair". "Anthony, 34, has been away from the team for two games with what has been described as an 'illness, ' and he didn't join the Rockets on their trip to Denver, sources said".
"Yeah, that's. I'm sure you can address that with Daryl".
Nothing's official yet, but it'll be interesting to see if other players come to back the veteran up. "Everything I can tell is yes, absolutely".
