Carmelo Anthony is currently still a free agent entering his 19 and half season in the NBA. Last season, he spent the season with Los Angeles Lakers averaging 13.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game in 69 games played.

A couple of years ago, Anthony was traded to the Chicago Bulls after playing ten games with the Houston Rockets. He would finally get an opportunity to play for the Blazers for two seasons before signing with the Lakers this past season.
