Daryl Morey Believes It's 'Extremely Unfair' Carmelo Anthony Being Singled Out

Share

A starter for 15 seasons, Anthony's been a reserve during his time in Houston and doesn't look like he'll be entering the starting lineup anytime soon if he ends up staying with the team.

It's been a whirlwind couple months for Anthony as of late.

Anthony signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum of $2.4 million with Houston after being bought out by the Atlanta Hawks.

As many expected, the Carmelo Anthony experiment hasn't exactly worked in Houston.

It's hardly been a fairy tale story during his time in Houston.

Tuesday's outcome effectively kickstarted the 2020 Presidential campaign in a country that is on a perpetual election cycle. Trump saw the move as a betrayal and frequently and publicly criticised Sessions for making the decision to recuse himself.

Anthony, who is in his 16th season, has averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in 10 games with two starts this season. As Wojnarowski notes, the Rockets would be on the hook for Anthony's $2.4 million for this season if they made a decision to waive him.

When asked if he's evaluating Anthony's role on the team, Morey said they're evaluating everyone as they try to get the team on track. Anthony sat out Saturday's contest in San Antonio, after going 1-for-11 from the field and scoring just two points in 20 minutes against his former team in Oklahoma City on Thursday. We're not playing well and we just gotta figure it out. As Coach [Mike D'Antoni] said yesterday, his approach has been great.

It's my job, it's coach's job to figure this thing out.

Anthony certainly isn't the only problem for the 4-6 Rockets, who have gone from leading the National Basketball Association in scoring previous year to ranking No. 26 entering Saturday, but it's not hard to see changing his usage as a possible path to positive change.
