Anthony, a four-time Olympian and three-time gold medalist, is the all-time United States scoring and rebounds leader but the 10-time All-Star has struggled in 15 NBA seasons, never playing in the NBA Finals.

CITY-Carmelo Anthony will leave the Oklahoma City Thunder over the summer according to an ESPN report.

Anthony, who is is due $27.9 million in salary this season and holds the right to veto any trade, bristled after last season at the notion of playing as a reserve going forward. One team that could be in on him is the Houston Rockets, according to The New York Times' Marc Stein. Based on a recent report, Anthony and the Thunder are expected to part ways this summer.

Anthony would have the option of joining a number of contenders if he becomes a free agent this offseason.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski: Why Teams Didn’t Want To Sign DeMarcus Cousins
Cousins was disappointed that he hadn't received any offers yet in free agency, so he was the one who reached out to the Warriors. Sure, "Boogie" was recovering from a torn Achilles tendon and has a reputation for being emotional and prone to technical fouls.

Melo struggled to adapt to a new role as a power forward last season and as a lesser cog in his team's offense. In Game 6 of the first-round playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma City's season, he played fewer minutes than his backup, Grant. Even if Anthony is traded, he would likely be moved to a team that is looking to acquire his massive expiring deal to free up salary-cap space for next season's free agency. You need as much talent as possible to challenge for a title, and Anthony was one of the only high-talent players available for the Thunder.

He expressed more than just concern about his role with OKC at the team's end-of-season exit interviews, when he called the possibility of coming off the bench next season "out the question", before saying, "I'm not sacrificing no bench role".

Anthony averaged a career-low 16.2 points to go with 5.8 rebounds and 1.3 assists this past season.

"As far as being effective as that type of player, I don't think I can be effective as that type of player", Anthony said then.
