Carmelo Anthony willing to play center if Rockets asked
Anthony said Monday at Rockets media day that he hasn't talked to general manager Daryl Morey or head coach Mike D'Antoni about those specific questions because he's willing to do whatever the team needs.
"Whatever I have to do to help this team win a championship, that's what's going to be done," Anthony said.
"I haven't had that conversation with anybody yet. I'm very clear on what my role is."
Reuniting with D'Antoni, who publicly claimed Anthony got him fired when they were together with the New York Knicks, raised questions about whether Anthony can check his superstar persona if placed in a position to be a support piece for the Rockets behind James Harden and Chris Paul.
Anthony could even slot it as a center or power forward in D'Antoni's smaller lineups.
"We'll see how it fits," D'Antoni said. "I don't know how they play together, how they fit together."
