Warriors’ Draymond Green says it’s crazy Carmelo Anthony is not on an NBA roster
Anthony hasn’t played in an NBA game since November of 2018. Melo’s future in the NBA is very uncertain, as we are in September and the future Hall of Famer is still on the open market.
Draymond Green to CNBC on Carmelo Anthony- "I think Carmelo is a great player who's had a great career & looks as if he still has a lot left in the tank… I think it’s kind of crazy that he’s not on an NBA roster. There’s a lot of players that he’s better than, that’s for sure."

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.
Brooklyn Nets players are reportedly pushing management to sign Anthony. Draymond Green and the Warriors haven’t been linked to Anthony at all. It’s unlikely the Warriors would have interest in adding Melo.
Green and Anthony were teammates on the 2016 Olympic team which won gold in Brazil at the summer Olympics. You’re never going to hear an NBA player say anything bad about Melo. He’s one of the easiest guys to get along with and still has something left in the tank.
The problem is finding a team and situation which can use Melo the way he wants to play — which is heavy isolation ball.
