players will behttp://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/robert-alford-jersey added to the pool of available free agents depending on whether their options are picked up or declined or whether they accept qualifying offers or not. While there are lots of team or player options out there to be decided on, most of them are probably going to be declined. The qualifying offer amount this year is $17.9 million. This is a list of all the options (whether player, team, or mutual) that have been decided on thus far, and what their salary for next season is or would have been depending on the outcome. This includes buyout amounts as well, if applicable. The qualifying offers are listed as accepted or declined. Some of these we knew were coming, some decisions were balancing on a fencepost, and some people probably werent thinking about at all, with the exception of fans of those teams. Here, team by team, is your offseason option and QO tracker. Top players not eligible for qualifying offers this year thanks to either having already received one or being traded in-season include Manny Machado, Andrew McCutchen, Nathan Eovaldi, J.A. Happ, Nelson Cruz, and Zach Britton.

The news was first reported by ESPNs Adrian Wojnarowski. This makes consecutive failed fits in two playoff organizations for the struggling former All-Star, and whats next for him is wildly unclear.After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said in a statement. Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike DAntoni gave him. The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him.Anthony signed with the Rockets for the veterans minimum this summer after he was traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder and subsequently waived by the Atlanta Hawks. He immediately accepted a bench role in Houston, but the teams come out of the gates playing poorly on both sides of the ball poorly with a 5-7 record. Part of the solution, in the Rockets eyes, is to get rid of him. Thats where were at with Carmelo Anthony.There was some dispute over whether Anthony was really gone from Houston on Sunday night prior to the Rockets win over the Pacers. The New York Times Marc Stein originally reported that Melo had been told his brief time in Houston would be ending soon, but the team, and more directly general manager Daryl Morey denied it. Morey addressed the media and said he expected Anthony back in the rotation upon his return from an illness that kept him out of the teams game against Indiana.That, of course, never happened.(It should also be noted that Houston looked as good as last season in the 12-point win without him, draining 20-of-46 threes.)Why are the Rockets waiving Anthony?For the obvious reason that he is no longer a good NBA player. Anthonys had a lauded career as one of the leagues best scorers, but theres little trace of that form of himself left.Hes scoring a career-worst 13.4 points per game at his lowest per 100 possession rate. That means his scoring rate isnt the lowest its ever been merely because hes playing the fewest minutes of his career, hes shooting poorly, too. Hes firing at just 40.5 percent from the field(on pace for the second-worst of his career) and a brutal 32.8 percent from 3-point range.And his defense ... is just as bad as always.Simply put, modern basketball hasnt allowed Melo to age gracefully.Whats Anthony going to do next?Thats a tough question. After two stints in OKC and Houston gone horribly wrong, hes going to struggle to find another interested party.Anthony might need to sit on the sidelines for a few months before someone can convince themselves hes worth another try.And he might need to consider the idea that nobody will reach that point again.
