In conjunction with the Bulls trading for Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and cash considerations from the Oklahoma City Thunder, Anthony was finally waived to create a roster spot.

The Chicago Bulls announced on Friday that they have waived forward Carmelo Anthony, clearing the way for the former All-Star to become a free agent.

Carmelo Anthony #7 of the Houston Rockets warms up before the game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on October 20, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Now that the time has come, it is believed that Melo will wait until after the NBA's February 7 trade deadline to see which team is the best fit. Cash was included in the deal, as were the draft rights to Jon Diebler and Tadija Dragicevic.

Anthony spent his first 14 seasons with Denver and NY before being traded to Oklahoma City ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

Anthony then signed with Houston but played only 10 games for the Rockets before being benched until a trade to Chicago last week in a salary cap money-saving move. The Bulls, technically, are Anthony's fourth franchise in seven months.

Luwawu-Cabarrot, 23, averaged 1.7 points and 0.9 rebounds while shooting 30.2 percent in 5.9 minutes across 21 games for the Thunder this season. At the time, a league source told ESPN he would not play a game with Chicago, but would instead be waived at some point.
