Report: Carmelo Anthony returning to NBA with Trail Blazers

  Report: Carmelo Anthony returning to NBA with Trail Blazers After months on the open market and fans clamoring for an NBA return, Carmelo Anthony finally has a new home. NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski dropped an unexpected Woj Bomb on Thursday night, reporting Anthony has signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Portland Trail Blazers.

Although Carmelo Anthony hasn't played in an NBA game in more than a year, the 35-year-old forward is joining the Portland Trail Blazers on a There were no takers, with Team USA’ s Jerry Colangelo worrying that Anthony “could be a distraction” and with no contract offers materializing, even though

The Portland Trail Blazers signed Carmelo Anthony , and star guard Damian Lillard played a part in the addition it seems. Damian Lillard was notified on the potential of adding Carmelo Anthony last night and he made it clear that he’ s always been supportive of bringing in the future Hall-of-Famer

He’ll join Damian Lillard, all-star guard and early MVP candidate, and CJ McCollum, the 2016 Most Improved Player. If you’re already raising your eyebrows at the amount of ball-handling guards now on the roster, you’re not alone.

Neither Shaquille O’Neal nor Charles Barkley were sold on the signing and said so during “Inside the NBA” on Thursday night. They agree that it’s a great opportunity for Anthony, 35, but he will need to be accepting of his bench role and assist as a complimentary asset to the Trail Blazers’ already established stars.

Carmelo Anthony signed with the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday. That was a game in Oklahoma City, in what was supposed to be a revenge game for Anthony against the Thunder, the team that had dumped him the previous summer after an uninspiring year in OKC.

Barkley’s literal assessment is, well, more in layman’s terms than any intense x’s and o’s analysis.

Barkley on Anthony’s place with the Trail Blazers:

“What’s going to be interesting is those guards dominate the ball so much. And I just don’t understand ... ... it’s like he’s going to a worse situation. Because in Houston they only had one guy who ‘dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble. [In Portland] they got two guys who ‘dribble-dribble.’”

That’s one way to put it.

Anthony, a 10-time all-star and 16-year veteran, will have to be OK with giving up some “dribble-dribble” since Lillard and McCollum are all about the “dribble-dribble” and would like to dribble their way to an NBA title.

Timing was right for Blazers' signing of Carmelo Anthony

  Timing was right for Blazers' signing of Carmelo Anthony A slow start and a plethora of frontcourt injuries set the stage for the Blazers to sign Anthony.Portland general manager Neil Olshey conveyed that sentiment during a phone call with Anthony, Woj relays. The 10-time All-Star had been out of the league for a year and hadn’t gotten offers from any other teams. The Blazers are severely shorthanded in the frontcourt and needed to find someone who can contribute right away.

The Blazers need Carmelo Anthony , and he needs them. To help fill that void, Portland turned to a famous name in Anthony , whose last NBA action came almost exactly a year ago before the Houston Rockets exiled him in anticipation of an eventual trade.

In other words, it will be an experiment worth watching in Portland and analysis always worth watching on TNT.

The Blazers (4-8) have a hole to fill after Zach Collins underwent shoulder surgery and is out until at least March. Lillard reportedly was always on board with signing Anthony, who will join the team for its six-game road trip that begins Saturday.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Carmelo Anthony smiled easily in a hallway outside the Trail Blazers’ locker room and asserted that he “felt great” after the first game of his 17th NBA season, even if his new team couldn’t keep pace with Jrue Holiday, Brandon Ingram and a largely revamped Pelicans squad that is showing signs of figuring some things out. “It felt great just to be back into the flow of the game, be back on the court, be back to where I think I belong,” Anthony said. “As far as conditioning, though, I felt absolutely great out there.
