Carmelo Anthony's time with the Houston Rockets appears to be over. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Rockets have agreed to trade the 10-time All-Star and cash to the Chicago Bulls.

Wojnarowski added that Anthony won't play in a game for the Bulls, but it is possible the franchise "holds off on waiving him until the trade deadline." Chicago will have the option of trading him in a one-for-one deal between now and then.

The trade with the Rockets is expected to be completed on Tuesday.

Anthony joined the Rockets in the offseason after completing a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks, but he appeared in only 10 games with the franchise. He hasn't played since since Nov. 8, when he made his return to Oklahoma City and scored two points on 1-for-11 shooting from the field.

In 10 games with the Rockets, Anthony averaged 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists.

Anthony has career averages of 24.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. He was last named an All-Star in 2016-17 when he was a member of the New York Knicks.
