Golden State Warriors unlikely to pursue Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony, a 10-time NBA All-Star, is still an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but it doesn’t seem like the Golden State Warriors are interested in signing the seasoned forward.

The Warriors, who recently won their fourth title in the past eight seasons, have now been dubbed a dynasty, and they don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

Klay Thompson is still a significant player despite his ACL and Achilles problems, Draymond Green is still an excellent defender, and the Warriors have a wealth of young talent that will only develop over time. Not only that, but Stephen Curry is still in the prime of his career.

However, many well-known figures have left the Bay Area after their recent championship. In free agency, Gary Payton II signed with the Portland Trail Blazers, Damion Lee signed with the Phoenix Suns, and Nemanja Bjelica went overseas with Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul. Otto Porter Jr. also signed with the Toronto Raptors.

The Warriors just made a move to add veteran forward JaMychal Green to their roster when the Oklahoma City Thunder released him; however, there are still a few unfilled roster places until the 2022–23 season begins.


Golden State Warriors not interested in signing Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony, a former scoring champion and ten-time NBA All-Star, is still an unrestricted free agent when August begins, but it doesn’t seem like Golden State will be a likely destination for him. Anthony is not currently on the Warriors’ radar and the team has not demonstrated any interest in signing him.

Given that Lester Quinones and Quinndary Weatherspoon are already occupying the team’s two open two-way spots, it is likely that at least one of Mac McClung, Pat Spencer, or Trevion Williams will earn the 14th spot on Golden State’s roster for the 2022–23 season. These three players have all signed training camp deals with the Warriors.

If Andre Iguodala decides to play in his 19th NBA season and not retire, the veteran forward and 2015 Finals MVP will take the 15th position on this roster. Anthony, who was elected to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot, appears to be nearing the conclusion of his career at the age of 38.

Anthony, one of the finest scorers of his time and a member of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary squad, is probably going to be one of the last free agents signed before the start of league-wide training camps at the end of September.

Given his friendship with LeBron James, Anthony still has a strong chance of re-signing with the Los Angeles Lakers on a one-year, minimum contract.

Anthony, who has played for the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers, and most recently the Los Angeles Lakers throughout his career, is getting ready for what will be his 20th NBA season this offseason.
