The Hawks' main concern is to split with 24-year old Schroder, and to do so they would reportedly be buying out the remainder of Anthony's contract, leaving him without a team.
Other reports have said Carmelo may be signed to the Houston Rockets as they have expressed interest in signing him as well.
