Two major pieces of the Portland Trail Blazers say they’ve reached out to Carmelo Anthony in an attempt to sell the New York Knicks star on their team.
All-Star Damian Lillard and teammate CJ McCollum, speaking Wednesday at Lillard’s basketball camp in Beaverton, Oregon, said Anthony sounded intrigued by the idea. “He can help us a lot; we can help him,” McCollum said, according to The Oregonian. “He wants to play in the playoffs and be competitive. He’s a very talented player. I think if we get him — when we get him — I think [we’re] top three in the West, easy.”
