The Portland Trail Blazers have resigned Carmelo Anthony on a 1 year vet minimum. Anthony initially signed with Portland during the middle of last season (2019-20) after a spate of injuries left the Blazers thin.
Anthony was a big part of Portland’s push to the playoffs and a postseason season birth for the 7th season in a row. He was awarded the annual Maurice Lucas Award and re-energized his career, getting into the best shape he has been in, and morphing into “Skinny Melo”
Carmelo averaged 15.4 points and 6.3 rebounds last season for Portland playing and starting 58 games.
Following last season, Anthony said he had found a home in Portland, and it was a place where he could be himself. He also said he would like to retire as a Blazer.
