Carmelo Anthony a free agent after being waived by Chicago Bulls

Yet, we might be seeing it, although he's not really taking any part in it.

He was still an All-Star two years ago, finishing the 2016-2017 National Basketball Association season with 22.4 points per game. It is unknown what the return is for Oklahoma City at this time.

Anthony joined the Houston Rockets last summer, but he found it hard to fit in the Rockets' attacking system and just played 10 games with the Rockets, averaging just 13.4 points.

After parting ways with the Houston Rockets on November 15, Carmelo Anthony has not played in a game since, and was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls on January 22.


The interest in Anthony is slim to none.

As the National Basketball Association trade deadline fast approaches, teams are starting to make deals with greater frequency.

The Lakers remain a possibility to sign Anthony, but that wouldn't happen until they use their current roster to exhaust trade deadline efforts to acquire New Orleans star Anthony Davis. He has appeared in 21 games and averaged 1.7 points and 0.9 rebounds in 5.9 minutes per game for OKC. Symbolic one might say.

Anthony spent his first 14 seasons with Denver and NY before being traded to Oklahoma City ahead of the 2017-20118 campaign. Turns out both, each in their own way, just magnified everything Anthony is not and can't be in today's game, and how without a change that perhaps is too late to make, his time in this league is over.
