The Golden State Warriors have no interest in claiming forward Carmelo Anthony. The Houston Rockets announced on Thursday they will be parting ways with the disgruntled player.

Anthony appeared in just 10 games with the Rockets before complaining about his bench role. He received just two starts in those 10 games.

At this time, he will remain on the Rockets roster. He signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the team.

“We all wanted it to work. It just didn’t happen,” Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni said. “And you feel bad for it, but to say, ‘Now we gotta do our jobs, and we gotta make some hard decisions.’ And the one thing I just didn’t ever want to disrespect was him or his career, going in the Hall of Fame. And you try to do the best thing and you don’t make all the right decisions for sure. But he was great, and we tried to make it work, it just didn’t work out.”

Whoever claims Anthony would be responsible for the rest of his salary. The Warriors have an open roster spot but have no plans to spend it on the 15-year veteran.

The New York native has refused to accept a backup role with the Rockets and the Oklahoma Thunder. Anthony was traded to the Atlanta Hawks, who bought him out twenty-plus days after being traded to the team.

Anthony is on the downside of his career. His playing abilities have diminished — and is no longer the player he once was.

He averaged 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 29.4 minutes per game.
