Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony has been waived by the Chicago Bulls, making the 10-time All-Star forward a free agent.

Anthony was traded to Chicago, on January 22nd from the Houston Rockets.

On Friday, the Oklahoma City Thunder acquired a protected 2020 second-round pick from the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot and cash considerations. The only question appeared to be whether he would be waived before or after the February 7 National Basketball Association trade deadline.

According to Bovada, the Lakers are the odds on favorite to land Anthony, but the Portland Trail Blazers, Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers are also among the teams listed in the Carmelo sweepstakes.

On Wednesday, seat cushions believed to have been from the plane were recovered by French authorities, and the search continues. An official search operation for the plane was called off on January 24 but a privately funded search began yesterday morning.


Anthony has averaged 24 points in 16 seasons. He's a career.385/.317/.829 shooter and offers little playmaking on the wing, averaging 0.9 assists per game for his career.

According to earlier reports, the Los Angeles Lakers remain a possibility for Anthony. The trade to the Thunder, the signing by the Rockets - both at the time looked like gusts of wind trying to put him on the contender track once more, albeit in a different role.

Luwawu-Cabbarot, who was selected 24th overall in the 2016 National Basketball Association draft and is in his third National Basketball Association season, averaged 1.7 points and 0.9 rebounds in 21 games this season.
