Rockets GM Daryl Morey denies report Carmelo Anthony will be waived

Carmelo Anthony appears to be staying in Houston. For now.

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey denied a report Sunday that the team has informed Anthony that he will soon be waived. Morey said the report in The New York Times was "inaccurate" and called the scrutiny of Anthony "unfair."

"It's unfair that there’s all this speculation on just one person," Morey said before the Rockets played the Indiana Pacers. "I understand it, he's obviously a Hall of Famer, but it's unfair."

The Rockets have stumbled to a 4-7 start after appearing in the Western Conference finals last season, and Anthony has been a target of criticism. Morey was upset that he felt Anthony had been "singled out."
