The Carmelo Anthony to Portland Trail Blazers suggestions just won’t go away. Today on The Jump, Tracy McGrady said that he thinks that Melo is a good fit alongside Portland’s guards:

I look at a team like the Portland Trail Blazers with (CJ) McCollum and Damian Lillard. These guys have been pretty much treading water over the last few years, not being able to get over that hump. I think, if you put a guy like Carmelo Anthony, coming off of their bench, providing offense - Melo can get you 16, 20 points.

Should the Blazers kick the tires on Melo, or no? Let us know in the comments!
