Earlier this week the Houston Rockets traded Carmelo Anthony to the Chicago Bulls, but he's likely to be on the move once again before the trade deadline. According to a report K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls will either trade or waive Anthony.

Anthony, 34, is on his third team in the last two years after stints with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks. He spent the 2017-18 season with the Oklahoma City before signing with the Houston Rockets before this season.

Melo didn't last long with the Rockets and hasn't played with the team since the early part of the season. According to multiple reports, Anthony wants to continue his NBA career and has been working out on his own.

So, where will he go?

According to the latest odds from OddsShark, the Los Angeles Lakers are the favorite to land the former Houston Rockets forward.

The Lakers are the heavy favorite, while the Portland Trail Blazers and Miami Heat round out the top three teams with the best odds.

Anthony, a 10-time All-Star, averaged over 16 points and nearly 6 rebounds per game with the Thunder during the 2017-18 season.

Will Anthony join LeBron James with the Lakers? Stay tuned.
