The Portland Trail Blazers are still hoping to re-sign forward Carmelo Anthony in free agency, despite trading for forward Robert Covington and signing forward Derrick Jones Jr. within the last week.
NBA analyst David Aldridge reports that the Trail Blazers are looking to keep Anthony around with the hope that he will be able to replicate the important role he played last season.
Since lots of people seem curious: the Blazers are still hoping they can re-sign @carmeloanthony despite adding Robert Covington via trade and signing Derrick Jones Friday. Still minutes and an important role to play. His impact on the team last year was substantial.— David Aldridge (@davidaldridgedc) November 21, 2020
Anthony was a key player for the Blazers last season, averaging 15.4 points and 6.3 rebounds per game over 58 games played.
