The now-Boston Celtics big man Enes Kanter, who signed to a two-year, $10 million deal this summer, says free agent forward Carmelo Anthony, who last played for the Houston Rockets, is still a full-fledged NBA player and deserves a spot in the league:

“So you’re telling me a guy like Melo can’t make a 15-man roster on 30 teams? It’s definitely crazy. Melo belongs in the NBA and he can still get 15-20 points,” Kanter said.

This past season, Anthony played in 10 games and mostly came off the bench to score 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.
