Nets waive Faried, expected to sign with Rockets


The Athletic reported Friday that there is some interest in Anthony around the National Basketball Association.

Faried will be officially waived from Brooklyn on Saturday and will clear waivers on Monday, giving the Rockets until Jan 21 to clear an open spot.

Brooklyn Nets big man Kenneth Faried has reached a buyout agreement and will sign a free-agent deal with the Houston Rockets, according to a report.

Melo's days are numbered with the Rockets, but that doesn't mean the team is even considering waiving him for nothing. But if Melo can find a system that works for him - and if he's willing to accept merely a supporting role - he could be a workable bench asset going forward. Nunnally is a 3-and-D player with a great jump shot, but with the return of Eric Gordon and James Ennis, he is easily replaceable.

Then, by last season, Faried was nothing more than an afterthought in Denver, playing in just 32 games.

The 29-year-old was acquired in a trade with the Nuggets along with Darrell Arthur in July as part of a salary dump.

With starting center Clint Capela sidelined for 4-6 weeks after undergoing surgery on his right thumb, Houston plans on putting Faried immediately into its lineup, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
