Carmelo Anthony’s time as an Atlanta Hawk is officially coming to an end.  He’s finalized the buyout of his contract and will be returning $2.4 million of his $27.9 million.

Anthony has to wait 48 hours to clear waivers before signing with the Rockets as expected and making his $2.4 million back with a veteran’s minimum salary.

Finally Houston’s missing piece to take down the Golden State Warriors.  He has gold medals after all.

There’s going to be even less defense during Rockets games than there already was.  Get ready to watch Melo and James Harden doing a lot of standing around.
