Former NBA forward Royce White recently told reporters he thought Anthony was being "blackballed" from the NBA while Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban both said he can contribute for a contender - or Team USA.
SNY reported a few weeks ago that Anthony participated in workouts and scrimmages with members of Brooklyn's roster this summer in Los Angeles. If Dwight Howard can get a non-protected contract, Carmelo Anthony is certainly worth that much, at least.
Durant and Irving both signed with Brooklyn at the start of free agency in July.
US Open 2019: Serena Williams sweeps into the fourth-round
Serena hasn't been bounced before the quarters at the US Open since 2006 when she lost in the fourth round. Petra Martic is coming off a straight sets win over Anastasija Sevastova that took 19 games to decide.
Anthony, one of the top free agents remaining on the market, will attend the Knicks' informal 5-on-5 scrimmages Thursday in NY, according to Sports Illustrated, which cited unidentified sources.
Carmelo Anthony has not played a game in the National Basketball Association since previous year.
The Nets are in desperate need of a second scorer to pair alongside Irving due to Durant being sidelined for the 2019-20 season because of an Achilles tear. There's no doubt that he can still play and he's willing to play any role at this point to salvage his career.
Technically, the Nets may add three more players over the course of training camp but adding Anthony into one of these spots wouldn't alleviate the bottleneck that they'd face when the season officially begins.
Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant could be the keys to Carmelo landing in Brooklyn.
