Anthony seals Portland move

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Ten-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony has completed his move to the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

Anthony, who has not played in more than a year since being axed by the Houston Rockets, joins a Blazers side which is languishing near the foot of the Western Conference with five wins and nine defeats.

“Carmelo is an established star in this league that will provide a respected presence in our locker room and a skill set at a position of need on the floor,” Blazers President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey said.
