    PORTLAND, Ore. - Carmelo Anthony is now with the Portland Trail Blazers and starting over with jersey No. 00.
    Word that the 10-time All-Star had joined the team broke Thursday night, but the agreement was not formalized until Tuesday when he signed a nonguaranteed contract that goes through January. If he stays, the contract becomes guaranteed for the rest of the season.
    Anthony was in the starting lineup for the Trail Blazers on Tuesday night in New Orleans.
    Anthony hasn't played since a 10-game stint with the Houston Rockets ended a little more than a year ago. But the Blazers hope there...

  • Carmelo Anthony will be in starting lineup for Blazers

    25 days ago - By Yardbarke

    Newly signed forward Carmelo Anthony will be in the starting lineup for the Portland Trail Blazers, head coach Terry Stotts said on Tuesday. When asked if Anthony would start going forward, Stotts replied, “I don't see why not,” per Andrew Lopez of ESPN. Considering that Zach Collins and Pau Gasol are both out long-term with injuries, and that Portland is so thin at forward, this isn't really surprising news. It also doesn't hurt Anthony's cause that the Blazers need more offense because they don't play any defense, and that the team is in panic mode at 5-9 on the season. It remains to be...

  • Carmelo Anthony shares why he's wearing '00' with Blazers

    25 days ago - By Yardbarke

    Carmelo Anthony officially became a member of the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, and along with that news came the announcement that the veteran superstar will wear a “00” jersey with his new team. Why did he choose to wear such a unique number? Well, Anthony himself took to Instagram to explain it all, albeit in somewhat mystical and mathematical terms. However, what's interesting about Anthony choosing to wear “00" is that No. 7, which the superstar has worn since signing with the New York Knicks in 2010 - and did so as well during subsequent stints with the Thunder and Rockets - was...
