Chauncey Billups Explains Why NBA Teams Don't Want Carmelo Anthony

Chauncey Billups has a theory about why Carmelo Anthony hasn't been picked up by an NBA team yet.

Anthony hasn't played since the 2018-2019 season when he was let go by the Houston Rockets after playing only 10 games. Billups and Anthony used to play on the Denver Nuggets together.

"I feel bad for Melo and here's why," said Billups. "Melo's was like a good teammate, man. Melo practiced every day. Didn't miss any games. Now, the one thing I will say—and I've even told Melo this—scoring 30 meant too much to Melo."

And Billups said nothing has changed since then.

"But now I think you fast forward the tape, and the reason he's not in the league—because he's still mentally worthy—he hasn't taken that step back to say 'Okay, I'll come in and play against back-ups, I'll try to help the team out. I know I might not be able to close, but I just want to help the team out.' He's not there yet," he explained.

Do you agree with Billups?
