NBA Insider, Chris Sheridan Dropped By The Scoop B Radio Podcast With Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson. Press Play Below To Listen!
Carmelo Anthony needs a team to join. Could the Portland Trail Blazers be it?
“Portland is an interesting question,” NBA insider Chris Sheridan told me on the Scoop B Radio Podcast.
“They have one the best backcourts in the West with C.J. [McCollum] and Damien [Lillard] and they have good players around them.
The third overall pick in the 2003 draft, Anthony’s last appearance with the Houston Rockets came in a blowout loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Nov. 8.
A ten-time NBA All-Star, Anthony signed with the Houston Rockets this summer after clearing waivers in the trade that shipped him from the Oklahoma City Thunder the Atlanta Hawks.
Melo in Portland?
“Is Melo going to come off the bench,” asked Sheridan.
“Or is he going to start? He’s definitely good enough to be an NBA starter, but he may be better as a scorer off the bench.”
Carmelo Anthony has averaged 24 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3 assists in his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder, New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets.
