Additional reporting claims Melo will bank just under $15,000 until his contract is guaranteed in 2020.
Blazers star Damian Lillard reportedly played a role in Melo joining the squad.
Anthony previously played at the start of last season and is most known for his scoring ability.
One of the most prolific scorers in NBA history, Anthony has averaged 24 points per game over his career and is best known for his years with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks. The 6-foot-8 forward will join a Trail Blazers team which has struggled out of the gate in the 2019-20 season with a 4-8 record. This after earning the No. 3 seed last season in the Western Conference and making it to the conference finals.
