After playing on the disappointing Los Angeles Lakers squad that failed to reach the playoffs in 2022, the franchise decided against re-signing Carmelo Anthony, leaving him as a free agent.
Currently still sitting on the market, Anthony may not have wait too much longer to find new NBA home.
According to a report from Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe, the Boston Celtics are looking to sign the veteran forward to their roster hoping that he can provide some much needed offensive production and depth off the bench.
While Anthony has clearly lost a step, Boston’s options are few and far between after all of the other viable offensive options were snatched up this offseason.
Anthony averaged 13.3 points in 26 minutes a game and shot 37.5% from three-point range in a reserve role for the Lakers.
Whether Melo could be a reliable option off the bench remains to be seen. But however you look at it, it will be a long and hard road for the Celtics to make it back to the Finals.
