From the moment he entered the NBA in 2003, everybody knew Carmelo Anthony was going to be a special player and while he had some competition in his draft class with LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, Melo quickly became one of the best players in the entire league.
While many around the league gave up on him after he left the Knicks in 2017, Anthony never gave up hope and he was given what seemed to be a final opportunity to prove himself to the league last year with the Portland Trail Blazers.
Not only did he prove to be useful for the Trail Blazers, but he quickly became one of their key players down the stretch run of the season, leading to them re-signing him this past offseason to a one-year deal.
Now, Carmelo Anthony’s career has seemed to be “resurrected” in a sense and he just moved into the Top-10 on the All-Time Scoring List in the NBA, passing the great Elvin Hayes. Anthony has had an amazing career, but just because he is almost 37-years-old does not mean that it is over quite yet.
Given the impact he has brought to the Blazers off-the-bench in the second-unit, Carmelo Anthony could be a key player for a handful of teams around the league and with him set to become a free agent this summer, there is a chance for him to once again prove his worth to a championship-caliber team.
What does this future hold for Carmelo Anthony? Let’s take a look at three teams who should pursue the future Hall-of-Fame forward in the offseason.
