Carmelo Anthony On His ‘Next Chapter With The Portland Trail Blazers’

Carmelo Anthony On His ‘Next Chapter With The Portland Trail Blazers’


It’s been over a year since Carmelo Anthony last laced out his shoes for an NBA game, but, now it’s for certain; Melo is back!

The Portland Trail Blazers and Anthony have agreed on a non guaranteed, one-year contract, that gives Melo the chance to prove that he still got some gas left in his tank.

These past few seasons haven’t really been ideal for Carmelo Anthony.

After a rough year in Oklahoma City, Melo was traded to the Atlanta Hawks in a three-way deal, but never played a minute for the Hawks, and was bought out of his contract. Houston then signed him and was hopeful that he could improve their team.

That only lasted a couple of weeks, before Carmelo Anthony’s services were no longer required in Houston. He was the easy scapegoat for how subpar and dysfunctional the Rockets were. Melo hasn’t played an NBA game ever since.

Melo now opened up about the journey of finding a new team and revealed how things went down.


“Everything happened in like 48 hour… I got a call on Wednesday, thought about it… Then Thursday was the commitment. It was, ‘Okay, I’m ready to do this. When do you wanna make this happen? I’m open, let’s really get really serious about this and make something happen.'”

“I always kept my eye on Portland. It just didn’t work out that other times, but now seems like a perfect opportunity. Me and Dame, we’ve been talking for the past couple of years, just off and on… I just look at that opportunity and that team and said, ‘Look, this is what I can bring to the team, this is where I can help in.’ It would only work if all parties see it the same way.”
