With Carmelo Anthony available, the Portland Trail Blazers should pursue the former scoring champ.
Carmelo Anthony has a career 24 points per game, 6.5 rebounds per game, and 3 assists per game. He’s a ten time all-star, and is a former scoring champ (2013). Fast forward to today, one of the NBA’s most premiere scorers ever just got traded as a salary dump to the Chicago Bulls. Chicago is expected to release Melo before the trade deadline. Perhaps the Portland Trail Blazers should make a push for him.
So, how did we get here? After a falling out with the New York Knicks, Carmelo was traded in September 2017 to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and a 2018 second round pick.
After one year, the Thunder traded him to the Atlanta Hawks in a three-team deal. The Thunder received Dennis Schroeder from the Hawks and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot from the 76ers.
After a buyout with the Hawks, Anthony had a quick stint with the Houston Rockets before being dealt on Monday.
