The future Hall of Famer was right all along, and Carmelo Anthony is back once again to play in the NBA for the Portland Trail Blazers with a non-guaranteed contract deal. Check all the games at 12BTi Sportsbook and win with the most incredible odds we offer!
Alongside top backcourt duos, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum with the rest of Portland’s cast should Carmelo give a hand and prove to everyone he still got something left in his tank despite the teams showing no interest in signing him from the offseason.
With a tough ten games to start this season for the Blazers and six of those being on the road got the team to swallow a 4-8 record. Even though having Damian Lillard gets into his A-game every night, having full of holes on the roster holds them back from their usual winning state, and putting Melo on the power forward position is the best opportunity for his comeback even if it’s the spot he was unwilling to play for from his entire career.
Starter Zach Collins is out for the next four months due to his shoulder injury, and Portland has not found a solution yet to fill its gap. Hopefully, Anthony is the piece they could rely on for the next few months for his career and the future of the Blazers in having a good run.
It has been a year since Carmelo Anthony stepped in the court, and that last time was with the Houston Rockets only for 13 games. From the offseason shared his insights with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith on getting another chance to play for one among the 30 teams in the league, and that he’s always in the gym every single day to redeem himself to everybody who gave up on choosing him.
With a rough road for the Portland Blazers at the start of the season, not having much depth on the roster with injuries piled up, and Hassan Whiteside’s transition for the team being criticized, there’s nothing much to lose for the franchise inserting Carmelo Anthony in the picture. He may be not the whole missing piece of the puzzle for Portland’s success, yet it’s a gamble on both Melo and the Blazers to make it or break it for the coming games.
