Carmelo Anthony is finalizing a deal to remain with the Portland Trail Blazers for another season.
As Shams Charania of The Athletic reports, Anthony wanted to return to the Blazers after a successful performance in the 2019/20 season.
Anthony, who received interest from several teams in offseason, averaged 15.4 points and 6.3 rebounds for Portland last season.
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. https://t.co/3AiNteh9GN
