    Melo fake quote: " I've always been against passing the ball so Portland's a good fit for me."

    If can still shoot teams might not rush Dame with 2 guys like most teams with Anthony the outlet.

    Is that a joke? That’s the lowest salary I’ve ever heard of

    That sounds like BS. Spotrac has him on a non guaranteed minimum contract at $1.3M.

    That makes a difference. Unless Marks is suggesting it lasts all of one day.

    I believe he's been paid not to play by 3 teams now...Bulls paid his salary this season and waived him I think

    One of the best things ever made. I'm surprised more people haven't lost their minds on here about it.

    One thing Melo does do well, is post up. This from just last season before Houston dumped him:

    Anthony is averaging 1.41 points per possession when posting up so far this season. According to Synergy Sports, that ranks as the best overall among all qualified players so far this season. The forward has barely missed when he is posting play type, shooting 15-for-19 (78.9 percent) through 10 games


    We really don’t have a consistent post threat right now, so he could theoretically help. Maybe Terry even utilizes him like he did with Aldridge. Pick and pop, post ups, etc. At this point, why not? I know I’d rather see Melo in pick and roll actions than Whiteside.
