Lakers rumored to have no interest in signing Carmelo Anthony

Although we're just one month into the National Basketball Association season, it appears as though the Carmelo Anthony experience for the Houston Rockets has not gone as planned.

With Carmelo Anthony's time in Houston appearing to be headed toward its conclusion, his representatives spent Monday talking with National Basketball Association front offices about finding a potential new team, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

In any case, Tim MacMahon of ESPN tried to pretend as though he bit on the Rockets' illness alibi to get a more accurate temperature of the Rockets' standing with Carmelo Anthony, though, Mike D'Antoni easily got ahold of what he was up to.

In his short time with Houston, Anthony is averaging 13.4 points and shooting 40.5% from the field in 29.4 minutes per game. Anthony will remain away from the Rockets.

It's sad to see Carmelo Anthony become an unwanted piece of an National Basketball Association team. Anthony spent his entire career as a ball-dominant scorer, but now that he's found himself on teams where he's no longer the best player, he's struggled to adjust to a new role as a third or even fourth scorer. Anthony did deliver a dramatic 28 points in a crucial road victory at Brooklyn on November 2 and back-to-back 24- and 22-point performances in late October losses to the Clippers and Utah Jazz. Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, there are many around that league that believe he's played his last game in Houston.

Assuming he's released, Anthony could have his veteran's minimum $2.4 million contract claimed on waivers, or he could clear waivers and become a free agent.

Several general managers and coaches are discussing whether or not Anthony could be a helpful piece on their rosters, according to Wojnarowski, but at this time of the season, this type of personnel move could be hard to make work.

"We've been extremely happy with his approach", general manager Daryl Morey told reporters on Sunday.
