Free agent Carmelo Anthony is finalizing a deal to re-sign with the Portland Trail Blazers, according to Shams Charania. 

Anthony wanted to show loyalty to the Trail Blazers, who gave him his opportunity to return to the NBA last season. He understands what to expect in Portland, where he will play a key role on a potential contender.

After a short stint with the Rockets for which he played only ten games in the 2018-19 season, Melo couldn’t find his way back to the NBA and was sidelined for almost a year until the Blazers decided to put their trust in him.

The 36-year-old forward played 58 games for Portland last season averaging 15.4 points on 38.5% from deep and 6.3 rebounds. He also had a crucial role in the post season.
