Carmelo Anthony's future with the Houston Rockets has reportedly been decided, according to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Anthony, who signed a veteran's minimum contract with the Rockets this summer, has been away from the team in recent days as questions swirl regarding his future with the team.

The Rockets got off to a struggling start and Anthony, a 10-time NBA All-Star, did not appear to be a fit with the team.

Wojnarowski is now reporting that Anthony is out.

"Carmelo Anthony’s brief stop with the Houston Rockets is over, league sources tell ESPN. Anthony will part ways with team, although there are no immediate plans to place 10-time All-Star on waivers. Team announcement is expected before Rockets play Golden State tonight," he reports.

Anthony's future in the NBA is unclear, but there are a couple of teams that could be interested in him.

From Sporting News:

The Rockets are reportedly preparing to move on from the 34-year-old forward after just 10 games. If that happens, the Lakers, Trail Blazers and Pelicans all could have interest in Anthony, The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor reported on a recent podcast.

Anthony was away from Houston for his third straight game — with what the team has described as an illness — when it topped the Nuggets 109-99 on Tuesday. He has averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds during his time with the Rockets.

An official announcement on Carmelo Anthony and his future with the Rockets should be coming soon. Stay tuned.
