Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan says ‘it’s definitely crazy not to see’ Carmelo Anthony in the NBA
San Antonio Spurs All-Star shooting guard DeMar DeRozan says “it’s definitely crazy not to see” Carmelo Anthony in the NBA.
Anthony hasn’t played in an NBA game since November. He was exiled from the Houston Rockets before the franchise traded him to the Chicago Bulls.
The Bulls then waived Melo in February. The former All-Star small forward has been on the open market ever since, but no team has signed him yet.
With the regular season ending soon, it doesn’t look good for Carmelo Anthony.
“It’s definitely crazy not to see him out there,” DeRozan told Landon Buford of Fanatics View. “But I’m confident he will be back out there.”
Carmelo Anthony played in just 10 games with the Rockets before the team decided the Melo experiment wasn’t going to work.
Melo 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.
There were rumors that LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers were interested in signing Anthony, but once the Lakers’ playoff hopes went out the door, the franchise decided to pass on adding Melo, who had a down season last year with the Oklahoma City Thunder as well.
