The Rockets GM later added this:
I mean, what else is the guy supposed to say? Anthony is still a part of the team at the moment. But let’s be real, who didn’t see this coming — other than everyone in Houston’s front office, apparently.
Anthony is the biggest waste of talent in the game. I know he had some good years in Denver, but he has not aged well at all. He’s the last of a dying breed and probably won’t play for a contender ever again.
Unless, of course, he takes a pay cut. But who am I kidding?
