After playing in 10 games with the Houston Rockets, forward Carmelo Anthony's tenure has come to an end.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Houston Rockets have agreed to trade forward Carmelo Anthony and cash considerations to the Chicago Bulls.

The 34-year-old Anthony has not appeared in a game with the Rockets since Nov. 8, when Houston lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder, 98-80.

While Anthony's trade signals the end of his time with Houston, his tenure with the Bulls will also be short-lived.

Chicago will either trade or waive Anthony prior to the Feb. 7 NBA trade deadline, giving him the option to select his next move.

In 10 games with the Rockets, Anthony averaged 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists. He also shot a paltry 41 percent from the field and 33 percent on 3-pointers.

The trade is scheduled to be completed Tuesday.
