NBA Basketball News: Carmelo Anthony is still looking for a job. The reason, the Boston Celtics are still thinking about recruiting the former Los Angeles Lakers star.
Anthony’s leadership impressed former head coach Frank Vogel. But the All-Star made 10 appearances on the court, averaging 13.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists while shooting 44.1% from the field and 37.5% from deep.
The Boston Celtics have become the latest team to be linked with a move for the 38-year-old after their summer signing Danilo Gallinari picked up a potentially season-ending ACL injury during a FIBA World Cup qualifier against Georgia. However, Brian Robb of MassLive reports that the Celtics are not expected to sign Anthony before training camp:
“The Carmelo Anthony rumor became a hot topic this week after rumors started circulating about the Celtics’ interest in him last week. However, multiple league sources have informed MassLive that the Celtics are not expected to be interested in signing the veteran for a pre-camp signing.”
“That doesn’t mean the team has finished building a roster ahead of pre-season, but Anthony is not a priority at this point for names that can be brought in. Boston likes a lot of their internal replacement options from what I’ve heard and wanted to give those names the first gap in the line-up. minute.”
Shortly after the 2021-22 season ended, rumors claimed Anthony had a “comfort level” living and playing in LA But that reportedly means he could potentially team up with former Oklahoma City Thunder team-mate Paul George at the LA Clippers – although the “prevailing thought” is that if he lived in LA, it would go back to the Lakers.
