Wojnarowski adds that talks are ongoing.

The Houston Rockets have been arguably the NBA's most disappointing team so far this season, with a 4-6 record heading into Saturday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni couldn't avoid the subject after the game but referred all questions about Anthony to general manager Daryl Morey.

"Yeah, that's. I'm sure you can address that with Daryl". "I'm trying to win a game".

The implication from Woj seems to be that the Rockets might not want Anthony around the rest of the season.

"What he was doing, Melo's been great", D'Antoni said.

Anthony, 34, signed a one-year veteran's minimum deal worth $2.4 million with Houston in August after being traded from the Thunder to the Hawks.

Houston is searching for answers during what has been a sluggish start to the season on offense and defense. His ball-dominant scoring acumen would seem to make him ideal for an offense-first sixth man role, but Anthony is shooting less and worse than he ever has in his career.

Anthony is coming off a game on Thursday in which he shot 1/11 and missed all six of his threes against Oklahoma City. He's shooting just 40.5 percent from the field overall and 32.8 percent from 3-point land.

After setting career-lows virtually across the board with the Thunder a year ago, Anthony has taken another step down.
