Leon Rose 'Amendable' To Carmelo Anthony Returning To Knicks 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Oct 17, 2020 5:32 pm

Carmelo Anthony could join the New York Knicks should Chris Paul get traded to the team, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post. 


Paul has been a frequently rumored target for the Knicks, with the Thunder preferring a potential deal to include Kevin Knox


Both Anthony and Paul were represented by current Knicks president Leon Rose.


Sources added that Rose would be open to signing Anthony even without Paul.

Nothing but PR by Melo's team to pressure the Blazers into signing him to a respectable deal. Hope it doesn't backfire where he finds himself w/out a team, again.

If the lakers somehow got CP3 I wonder if they try to grab Melo as well

Melo's a minimum contract bench filler. Everybody knows that but him.

He played pretty well starting for the Blazers being the 3rd option. Even played defense. I see him getting an offer from the Blazers easily. I personally wouldn't go to NY until they straighten out their ownership. If the Lakers, however, call then I'd think about playing with his best friend. Chris Paul is bound to be a Laker sooner or later, so the 3 could finish their career on the same team.

I highly doubt he goes to NY. What would be the draw? To play on a lottery team? The Blazers are contenders in the West if they stay healthy.

The only team I can see him considering leaving Portland for would be the Lakers so he could play with LeBron. Even that, like you said, the Blazers gave him a shot when no one else wanted him, including the Lakers.

Leon Rose: we will turn over every rock to make this team better, I am amendable to anything

Melo's agent: Carmelo Anthony could join the New York Knicks should Chris Paul get traded to the team, sources told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

and then Melo's Agent: calls up Portland to attempt to secure a 3-year contract in excess of the veteran's minimum

He had the best offensive and defensive rating of his entire career. PER can be misleading or overused at times, especially for players who are 2nd and 3rd options on a team. McCollum, for example, only had a 17 PER.

Anthony isn't the Melo of old, but he showed he still has value in this league, especially for the price. There are a lot of players with single digit PERs who are making way more.

How can you believe this? Both his ORTG and DRTG were significantly worse than his career average, bordering on the worst of his career, not the best. :noway: He's a replacement level player, or worse. Any more than a minimum contract is an overpay.

poeple will find stuff to hate on melo, thats basically his whole career.

im aware melo is not the best player as per advanced stats. but to me eye test and results matter more in this case.

call him benchfiller and bum is obvious hate or someone that doesnt watch basketball games / only read boxscores and advanced stats
im bout dat action boss
