Former NBA forward and current ESPN analyst richard jefferson believes Carmelo Anthony will get another shot in the NBA “if he keeps this humble mentality.”

Anthony told ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith a few weeks ago he’s willing to play any role on a team. Melo hasn’t played in an NBA game since last November.

“If a guy of that caliber wants to [play] and stays committed, I believe he will be given another opportunity,” Jefferson said on ESPN’s Get Up. “You never know the injuries that can happen or the trade deadline, playoffs…I think he will get an opportunity if he keeps this humble mentality”

Carmelo Anthony played in just 10 games with the Houston Rockets last season before the franchise exiled and traded him to the Chicago Bulls in January. The 10-time All-Star averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds 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.

The Bulls waived Anthony in February. Since then, no team has expressed interest in signing the future Hall of Famer. LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers have one roster spot available, and even they don’t want to sign Melo.

Carmelo Anthony’s future in the NBA is very uncertain, as we are in August and Melo is still on the open market. Hopefully, Richard Jefferson is right and Anthony gets one more shot to play in the NBA.
