Rockets Reportedly Plan to Move Veteran Star to Backup Role
Could Carmelo Anthony be coming off the bench?
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, it is very possible:
Of course, Carmelo Anthony will compete for a starting spot in training camp, but ultimately could come off the bench — based on whatever Mike D'Antoni decides makes most sense for Rockets. https://t.co/1Gn2eJlhye

It is questionable whether or not Anthony, who officially signed a 1-year, $2.4 million deal with Houston on Monday, would accept a bench role. When asked about the possibility at the end of last year, the 10-time all-star, who has started every game in his career, replied that moving out of the starting lineup was “out of the question,” despite a disappointing season in Oklahoma City.
