Anthony played in just 10 games with the Houston Rockets before the franchise exiled and traded him to the Chicago Bulls last season. The Bulls waived Anthony, who hasn’t received any interest from teams since entering the open market.
Anthony averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game with the Rockets while shooting 40.5 percent from the field, 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 68.2 percent from the free-throw line.
Hopefully, there’s a team out there that doesn’t buy into narratives and gives Melo one last shot to play the game he loves. Carmelo is an NBA legend and deserves to go out on his own terms.
If Anthony doesn’t play ever again, it would be a sad end to what was a great career. One of the best scorers in NBA history, Melo has career averages of 24.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 1,064 games with the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder and Rockets. He will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day.
