Mike D’Antoni says Carmelo Anthony was poor fit on Rockets

Mike D'Antoni

Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni spoke on Thursday about the team parting ways with Carmelo Anthony, and he tried to put things as politely as possible. The bottom line is that Anthony was a poor fit on the team, so they decided to move on.

Here’s what D’Antoni said about the situation, via Houston Chronicle Rockets reporter Jonathan Feigen:

The Rockets are keeping Anthony on their roster for now while trying to figure out the next step. He just will not be reporting to the team.

Anthony played 10 games for Houston and the team went 4-6 in those games. They’ve gone 2-1 without him. Anthony is posting among some of the worst shooting percentages of his career (40.5/32.8/68.2) this season.
