In an appearance on First Things First on FS1, a two-time NBA champion Chris Bosh, who hasn’t played in the league since 2016 due to blood-clotting issues, said that free agent forward Carmelo Anthony is still a full-fledged NBA player and should be playing in the league:

“I can’t understand why Melo doesn’t have a job. I’ve known Melo since we were both 17 years old. … He should be playing. He’s good enough. He’s in shape. He can shoot it. I don’t know if they watch much basketball, but he can play,” Bosh 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. Meanwhile, Bosh averaged 19.2 points along with 8.5 rebounds per contest with the Heat and Toronto Raptors.
