He has played for five franchises the Knicks, Rockets, OKC, Nuggets, and Portland, throughout his career. This year as Melo entered Free agency a lot of teams have their eyes on him but it sure does look like LeBron James wants his buddy by his side.

Carmelo Anthony is definitely a player who is going to be a hall of Famer. It won’t matter if he wins a ring or not. However, it would be nice to see a veteran finish a stellar career with a ring. He finished the 2020-2021 post-season with 12.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game.
Along with Carmelo Anthony rumours has it that the Los Angeles Lakers are also interested in DeMar Derozan. The Lakers are really looking to come back to the season looking like the scariest team and with the way they are building their roster they might just take it all home.
