With Carmelo Anthony having played his final game for the Houston Rockets, what could he bring to another team?

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday that the Rockets have agreed to trade Anthony and cash to the Chicago Bulls. However, Anthony won't play a game for the Bulls, league source tells ESPN. He will be released and become a free agent if he clears waivers.

So how much can Anthony still contribute at age 34 after being jettisoned by a pair of teams in the past four months? And where might his skill set fit? Let's take a look.
