Carmelo Anthony will come off the bench for Rockets

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Anthony plans to sign his $2.4 million deal on Monday, according to league sources.

If the bench role is one Anthony has agreed to upon signing with Houston, it's a surprising development for a superstar who voiced serious displeasure with his lack of playing time during the Thunder's playoff series against the Jazz this spring.

In going to the Rockets, who won an NBA-best 65 regular-season games a year ago, Anthony likely will be coming off the bench, the report stated. The decision came after he cleared waivers from his release from the Atlanta Hawks.

That trade was made in large part because it is slated to save the Thunder almost $73 million in payroll and luxury taxes, according to ESPN front-office insider and former Brooklyn Nets assistant general manager Bobby Marks.

The 34-year-old Anthony averaged a career low 16.2 points in 78 games last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In July, the newspaper reported that Manigault Newman landed a seven-figure book deal with Simon & Schuster, a subsidiary of CBS. But instead, as I stated, there was a report that said he has said something like 4,000 lies since he's taken office.

Anthony joins a team led by MVP James Harden and star point guard Chris Paul and is expected to play a bench role for the Rockets.

Harden has already said as well that he thinks Houston will be able to figure something out in order to make sure that he's happy with his role on the team.

A 10-time all-star, Anthony has won three Olympic gold medals with the United States.

Anthony also has received a $25.4 million buyout of his original 2018-19 salary - minus the $2.4 million contract buyout with the Hawks.
