Carmelo Anthony is set to take the floor with his fifth NBA team on Tuesday night, but how much will the former Knick actually play?
According to ESPN's Marc Spears, Anthony is expected to start and play about 20 minutes for the Trail Blazers in New Orleans against the Pelicans.
The Blazers officially announced the signing of the 10-time All-Star on Tuesday afternoon, signing him to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal.
"Carmelo is an established star in this league that will provide a respected presence in our locker room and a skill set at a position of need on the floor," Blazers president of basketball operations Neil Olshey said in a statement released by the team.
The third overall pick in the 2003 draft, Anthony, now 35 years old, has career averages of 24.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game, while shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc. In seven seasons with the Knicks, he averaged 24.7 points and helped the team make the playoffs for three straight seasons starting in 2010-11.
Anthony has played for the Nuggets, Knicks, Thunder, and Rockets, and while he was also acquired in trades by the Hawks and Bulls, he never suited up with those teams.
Anthony will take the floor on Tuesday night with a new team and a new number, as he'll be wearing No. 00 with the Blazers.
