LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Carmelo Anthony isn’t interested in sticking around in Oklahoma City as a bench player for the Thunder.
A day after the Thunder were eliminated from the first round of the NBA playoffs, Anthony said during his exit interview on Saturday that such a role was out of the question.
‘‘I’m not sacrificing (with) no bench role,’’ he said. ‘‘I think everybody knows I’ve sacrificed damn near everything, and was willing to sacrifice nearly everything for this situation to work out.’’
The 33-year-old forward spent significant time on the bench during the Thunder’s first-round loss to the Utah Jazz.
