Carmelo Anthony was one of the biggest signings for the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason. The 10-time NBA All-Star brings a much needed skill to the team, says Lakers GM Rob Pelinka.
“One of the ingredients that we felt like we really missed last year was just guys that were lasers that could space the floor and make catch-and-shoot (shots),” he said when speaking about Melo, per Harrison Faigen.
Pelinka also mentioned the 37-year-old veteran’s physical strength and rebounding ability as some of his other skills that will benefit the Lakers.
This past season, Anthony averaged 13.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game for the Portland Trail Blazers.
