The Houston Rockets are going to be releasing Carmelo Anthony, according to the New York Times’ Marc Stein. On Saturday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news that Anthony is not happy with his role.
He had to expect when he signed that he would not have a large role with the team. He signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal.
Anthony is having a extremely difficult time accepting his skills are washed up. He’s no longer the player he once was, yet he still feels like he’s entitled because he’s Carmelo Anthony.
This would be his second buyout in months. After being included in the trade package between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Atlanta Hawks, he received his entire salary in full of more than $25 million from the Hawks.
He will not play for the Rockets on Sunday at the Toyota Center against the Indiana Pacers. He also did not play on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs with an “illness.”
With Anthony complaining about a backup role, it will be interesting if any team signs this player, who is crying about his role.
The 34-year-old New York, New York native — the third overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft — has made 10 appearances with two starts this season. He’s averaging 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.7 blocks.
