Still without a franchise at present, Carmelo Anthony hopes to find a new home by the time the recovery takes place. He could return to the Lakers, or sign his return to a former team, nothing should be ruled out. Unfortunately, an insider has just launched a big cold snap concerning a track from the veteran. Shame.
While he has revitalized his career since his move to the Blazers, Carmelo Anthony continues to perform. He remains a problem in defense certainly, but he is always able to punish offensively, which makes him a formidable asset for a team which aims for the title. He had a few heat strokes with the Lakers, to the point that Rob Pelinka is thinking of bringing him back. For now, nothing has been done yet.
As often, the veterans are the last served on the market. Many are waiting for the big moves of the summer, like that of Kevin Durant for example, to find out where to sign. For the others ? The franchises are procrastinating while waiting to know their final roster. This is where Melo finds himself at the moment, since he has to wait and hope that an organization decides to give him a call.
The big cold snap for Melo on the market
It’s never easy for a player like Anthony, who was close to retirement a few years ago. But he knows that his abilities are appreciated, at least among the Angelinos. At the Nuggets, which were mentioned a few days ago ? The answer is no. Journalist Mike Singer, close to the franchise, inquired about the possibility of a return for the former number 15. He received an unequivocal answer.
I’m told there’s “zero” to this, per source. https://t.co/CtxN428lRd

I have just been told that there is “no chance” for that.
At least Singer’s source is clear: Melo won’t be returning to the Nuggets. A little curious, since Nikola Jokic’s franchise is playing the title. Have such a scorer off the bench? It’s a weapon to consider, but not in this specific case according to this rumor. It would be a shame for the former Knick, who is not really overwhelmed by proposals for the moment.
He would be a great fit off the bench for some instant offense and it gives him an opportunity to come full circle and win a championship in Denver.

He would be a good addition off the bench with his immediate impact in attack. This also gives him the opportunity to come full circle and win a championship in Denver.
Barring an accident, Carmelo Anthony will not sign with the Nuggets, not interested in the veteran. We have to believe that Melo must focus on a return to the Lakers, barring a surprise in the market. Until the training camp, which will take place at the end of September, we must not neglect any track.
