After being cut by the Houston Rockets in the middle of last season, Carmelo Anthony, one of the best scorers of the last two decades, has been without a team until this morning he has announced his agreement with the Portland Trail Blazers.
He was selected in the 2003 draft by the Denver Nuggets, grew, shone and became a league star before being transferred to the New York Knicks. In the Big Apple he became an icon, until his fire went out and he ended up sharing Big Three in Oklahoma City with Russell Westbrook and Paul George. It didn’t go very well and ended up in Houston, with James Harden and Chris Paul, and it didn’t work either.
Now, months after the Rockets leadership kicked him out of the squad, he signed with Portland, where he will share a team with Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum … and Pau Gasol, who is still injured.
