All the big names in the 2019 NBA free agency have already found a new home, but there is one notable player who remains unsigned on the open market – 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony. Since being waived by the Chicago Bulls, Anthony is having a hard time finding an NBA team who will give him the opportunity to continue his NBA career. However, Anthony is still very optimistic that he will be playing in the 2019-20 NBA season.
Carmelo Anthony may no longer be in his prime, but he would still be a great addition to a legitimate title contender who needs a boost in their second unit, especially now that the veteran small forward is more willing to accept a reduced role. Though he struggled to make himself fit alongside Chris Paul and James Harden on the Houston Rockets, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the same thing will happen with other contenders. Frank Urbina of HoopsHype recently created a list of potential landing spots for Anthony in the 2019 NBA free agency
One of the most intriguing free-agency destinations for Carmelo Anthony is the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite going through lots of ups and downs in the past two years, Urbina believes that Anthony “could legitimately help” the Bucks contend for the NBA championship title in the 2019-20 NBA season. However, this will require Anthony to tremendously improve his ability to play off the ball and be a more efficient catch-and-shoot three-pointer.
