Carmelo Anthony's future is going to be decided soon, it seems. The 10-time All-Star forward remains a part of the Oklahoma City Thunder, but he's likely to be stretched or traded sometime soon.
ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski had a major update on Anthony's status this afternoon. Here's the latest on what's going on.
Anthony, who has one year and roughly $27 million remaining on his contract, is working with the Thunder on either getting bought out, traded or stretched.
The Thunder in the meantime have been allowing Anthony to meet with other NBA teams.
In advance of an inevitable -- if not imminent -- parting, the Oklahoma City Thunder granted Carmelo Anthony permission to meet with prospective teams, including the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat, league sources told ESPN.
Anthony and his representatives met with Rockets and Heat officials at the site of the NBA Summer League in recent days, league sources told ESPN.
Thunder general manager Sam Presti and Anthony's agent, Leon Rose of CAA Sports, have been working cooperatively to expedite a separation from the Thunder.
The Rockets are believed to be the favorite, according to most experts. Houston is led by Anthony's former coach in Mike D'Antoni. Those two didn't get along very well in New York, but reports suggest that wouldn't be the case in Houston.
