Carmelo Anthony was one of the best scorers in the league in his prime, and he terrorized defenses with his isolation ability during his time with the Denver Nuggets and the New York Knicks. Anthony was a genuine superstar and a top-tier three-level scorer that could get buckets from anywhere on the court.
While he is no longer in his prime, Carmelo Anthony is still an elite shooter who has shown that he can thrive as a bench scorer. This past season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony averaged 13.3 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 1.0 APG, while shooting 37.5% from beyond the arc.
As of right now, Carmelo Anthony is still a free agent, but it seems as though there is a potential destination for him. A report by Sam Amico of Hoops Wire revealed that there is "speculation around the league" about the Denver Nuggets potentially signing Carmelo Anthony, but he noted that as of right now, it is "mere speculation".
Speculation around the league is that the Nuggets could potentially look into signing Carmelo Anthony, an unrestricted free agent. For now, though, it’s mere speculation, sources told Hoops Wire.
There is no doubt that Carmelo Anthony could potentially be a good signing for the Denver Nuggets due to his shooting ability. He could also be a solid veteran presence for the team, and he would be an extremely good depth option. It would also be good for Carmelo Anthony to return to the Denver Nuggets, as it would make his NBA journey come full circle.
There are definitely other teams where Carmelo Anthony could end up thriving, and he has been linked to the Nets and the Warriors. As a veteran minimum pickup, Carmelo Anthony is one of the best options out there. Hopefully, we see him on a contending team next year, one where he will be able to compete for a championship.
