Ten-time NBA All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony signed a prorated one-year, $2.2 million non-guaranteed contract with the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday. Anthony talks on his return to the NBA:

Last season, Anthony appeared in 10 games for the Houston Rockets before he was traded to the Chicago Bulls. On February 1, the future Hall of Famer was waived by the franchise.

As a Rocket, the 35-year-old averaged 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 0.5 assists per game, while shooting at 40.5% from the field and 32.8% from three.
