Carmelo​ Anthony’s​ NBA career​ might​ not​ be​ over after all.

According to​ two sources with knowledge​​ of Anthony’s situation, the exiled 10-time All-Star who remains on the Houston Rockets roster has multiple options available and is expected to pick one before the Feb. 7 trade deadline. There is no clarity as to whether he would be traded in these scenarios or waived and subsequently signed, but there are strong signs that he will play in the NBA again. Anthony signed with the Rockets on a $2.4 million, one-year minimum deal in mid-August.

Last we saw Anthony, his short-lived Rockets career was coming to a close with the most ironic and brutal of shooting slumps. It was Nov. 8 in Oklahoma City, inside that same Chesapeake Energy Arena where his Thunder experience had gone awry the season before and where the Rockets would fall, 98-80, in Game No. 10 of their rocky regular season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder’s discussions to move nine-time All-Star guard Chris Paul to a new destination are parked, and an increasing expectation exists that he will start the season with the team, league sources tell ESPN.

Oklahoma City has been working with Paul and his representatives on finding a trade, but nothing is materializing so deep into summer free agency, sources said. Both sides believe there are benefits to Paul, 34, playing out the season with the Thunder. For now, there’s a belief that there could be more success exploring trade scenarios again after Dec. 15 — or even the completion of the 2019-20 season, league sources said.

The market expands on Dec. 15, when players who signed offseason free-agent deals can become eligible to be included in trade packages.
