Portland Trail Blazers has moved like few others in this market: via transfer incorporated Robert Covington and Enes Kanter, in the Free agency renewed Rodney Hood and added to Derrick Jones Jr., and now continuity is confirmed of a piece that will give even more depth to a team that aspires to fight in the upper part of the Western Conference: Carmelo Anthony.

As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski (ESPN), the historic scorer agreed to a new link for one year and the minimum veteran. An award for the effort and dedication that he showed during 2019-2020 to get back into the league thanks to the door that the Oregon team opened for him.

It will be the 18th season in the NBA for Melo, who comes from a special course where he knew how to adapt without major problems to a secondary role in a structure that has (and will continue to have) Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum y Jusuf Nurkic like pillars. In 58 Regular Phase matches, he averaged 15.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 32.8 minutes, with 38.5% triples (3.9 attempts). And throughout the Playoffs maintained its level, with records of 15.2 points (42.1% triple), 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in all five games of the First Round series against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Thus, Terry Stotts’s ensemble further deepens a rotation that looks like this:
- Guards: Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Gary Trent Jr., Anfernee Simons
- Eaves: Robert Covington, Rodney Hood, Carmelo Anthony, Nassir Little
- Interiors: Jusuf Nurkic, Zach Collins, Enes Kanter
