Carmelo Anthony is returning to the NBA . According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Anthony will be signing with the Portland Trail Blazers . Anthony spent the 2018-19 season with the Houston Rockets and was a shell of his former self, playing in just 10 games and averaging 13.4 points.
Anthony is a three-time Olympic gold medallist but has struggled at the end of his recent stops in Oklahoma City and Houston following 6 1/2 seasons in New York.
Anthony was acquired by the Chicago Bulls from Houston on Jan. 21, with the intention of trading him before the deadline or letting him go. He averaged 13.4 points in 10 games with the Rockets last season, but hasn’t played since November 2018.
Anthony was traded by Oklahoma City to Atlanta in July 2018, a move that preceded the Hawks releasing him to sign with the Rockets. The Bulls, technically, were his fourth franchise in seven months.
Eight of Anthony's 10 appearances for the Rockets came off the bench after he had started all 1,054 games he'd played in his first 15 NBA seasons. He has averaged 24 points in 16 seasons.
