Carmelo Anthony has seemingly silenced any and all doubters since making his return to the NBA this season with the Portland Trail Blazers.
After being named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday, Anthony has now had his contract fully guaranteed by the Blazers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Blazers officially announced Anthony's signing on November 19, signing him to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract at the time.
Wojnarowski notes that the Blazers had until early January to make a decision on guaranteeing the contract, but it looks like they've seen enough from the former Knick to want him around for at least the rest of the season.
With the deal now guaranteed, Anthony is scheduled to make just over $2.1 million this season with Portland.
In his first eight games with the Blazers, Anthony has averaged 16.9 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. He's also shooting 44.8% from the floor, his highest shooting percentage since 2013-14 with the Knicks.
He earned Player of the Week honors this Monday, after averaging 22.3 points and 7.7 rebounds during a three-game stretch for the Blazers, with Portland winning all three games.
Anthony and the Blazers will take on the Knicks next Tuesday in Portland, and Melo will make his return to The Garden on New Year's Day.
