Although the overall performance of the Lakers was a disaster last season, Carmelo Anthony, who holds the veteran’s base salary, is indeed a rare bright spot. The veteran is conscientious and conscientious, averaging 13.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, maintaining a 37.5% three-point shooting rate. , which is well-known.
Now, at the age of 38, he has become a free agent, and he still does not know how to sign the next contract. Some media have revealed that Anthony should not lack a market, and the Lakers are already discussing with him about contract renewal.
However, whether the Lakers can keep Anthony is still a question mark, because there have been rumors that the Knicks and the Nets are interested in Anthony, and the experts of “Bleacher” also said that the defending champion Warriors may also choose this veteran as a reinforcement. .
Expert analysis said that Anthony can help the team open up space on the court and can contribute as a substitute. His current style of play is very suitable for the Warriors, because most of his goals rely on catch-and-shoot and do not occupy the ball. , and the Warriors ranked third in the league in the number of perimeter catch-and-shoots created last season.
Anthony has a good mentality now and regards playing happily as his primary purpose, but if he can go to a strong team to compete for the championship, it is of course a dream opportunity for him.
