Melo on his way out the door?

The issue goes beyond Melo, but he is one of the issues right now. Wish him the best of luck regardless. The guy came prepared prior to the season, but sometimes things just don't work out.

Scapegoating Carmelo here would show the franchise to truly be losers. He is a 2 million dollar bit player.

They address the real issues or just punk themselves out by taking the easy way out and scapegoating Carmelo

They aren't scapegoating him. It hasn't worked out. Gary Clark has outplayed him and deserves his minutes. It's in the best interest of all parties to move on. The rockets have been very clear that they don't blame Melo. More had a press conference today just to defend him. The rockets can play the guys who help them more, and Melo can get minutes elsewhere

This is like Josh Smith in Detroit except we're on the other end now although thankfully we don't have to stretch Melo like the Pistons did.
Harden is still a work-in-progress. He can score, but he can't help his teammate that much - Yao Ming

Unless Melo is willing to accept Nene-esque minutes, he's gone.
