Carmelo Anthony said he'll only come off the bench when he's good and ready.

"I know how to play this game of basketball," he told Jemele Hill of The Undefeated. "I've been playing it for a long time. When I feel like I'm ready to take that role, then I'll take that role. Only I know when it's best for me to take that role. I'm not going to do that in a situation where I still know my capabilities and what I can do. And at the end of the day, the people who really matter know my capabilities and what I can still do. You start getting to the media and debates, it's going to always be kind of back-and-forth."

Recently, Anthony opened up to ESPN about what went wrong in OKC and admitted that it wasn't a good fit. The 6'8" forward also cast some shade, arguing things were already in place when he came to the Thunder and he didn't get a lot of help figuring out where he fit in.

OKC traded Anthony to Atlanta earlier this month. The Hawks will buy out his contract. Rumor has it, that he'll join the Houston Rockets once the buyout is finalized. 

Do you think he'll end up coming off the bench in Houston?
