Report: Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving pushing Nets to sign Carmelo Anthony
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving already got Brooklyn to sign one past-his-prime former star in DeAndre Jordan.
Could they convince the Nets to add another in Carmelo Anthony?
Anthony’s peers clearly respect him. He was a very good player who main skill – individual scoring – garners the most attention, especially from fellow players.
Still, the Nets could use another forward with Wilson Chandler suspended. Anthony might better harnesses his talent into a complementary role (though probably not). There’s value in appeasing Durant and Irving. It’s just an end-of-roster-spot on a team facing a year of limbo until Durant returns from injury. Though I think it’s a bad idea, it’s likely a low-impact bad idea.
Want more evidence this a poor plan? The Knicks reportedly would’ve considered signing Anthony if they got Durant and Irving.
