Anthony, 34, inked a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Houston Rockets.
Per The Oklahoman:
“IN LIFE, I’ve learned that things don’t always turn out how you want,” Anthony continued in his letter. “I wanted nothing more than to make it work here & help bring this city a championship. I’m sorry it didn’t work out while I was here.”
Anthony’s seven months in Oklahoma City weren’t a complete failure. He was part of one of the most effective starting lineups in the NBA — 14.2 points per 100 possessions better than the opposition. Anthony, Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Steven Adams and Andre Roberson were gelling on offense and defense until a season-ending knee injury to Roberson in January struck a major blow during the Thunder’s longest winning streak of the season.
“This chapter of my career may be coming to an end,” Anthony wrote. ” … but my story is far from over.”
