The guys deep dive into the Nets' last three wins over the Rockets, Magic and Kings before getting into what the recent late game heroics mean for the team.

As of right now, the Nets are "very unlikely" to sign Carmelo Anthony, according to a report from Shams Charania.
Brooklyn is more likely to sign players that they have worked out recently, with Charania naming Lance Thomas and C.J. Williams as possibilities. At least more people can complain about Melo being unsigned now.

According to Ian Begley, several Nets players are pushing for the team to sign Carmelo Anthony but it's unknown whether the front office will go forward.
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have already been reported as being among Anthony's supporters. Still, Melo could end up with a team other than the Nets or nowhere at all in the NBA. He averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds before the Rockets parted ways with him last November.

Carmelo Anthony participated in a 5-on-5 scrimmage with some Knicks players on Thursday.
The Knicks have 15 guaranteed deals on their roster and one spot remaining for their training camp, so it may be tough for Melo to catch on, but this is the second known workout in the past week and long overdue. If things go well, maybe we'll see additional teams take a look at the former scoring champ. For now, Melo can be ignored in fantasy drafts.

Carmelo Anthony has been in Los Angeles participating in informal workouts and scrimmages with some of the Nets players.
Anthony may not get another chance to play in the NBA. However, the speculation surrounding the 10-time All-Star has been rampant with the Lakers and Clippers as the most likely landing spots. It is unlikely that he winds up with the Nets as they would have to waive another player to make room for him on the 15-man roster.

Carmelo Anthony will not be invited to Team USA according to Shams Charania.
There has been speculation that this would be a good idea and supposing he wants to get back into the league it wouldn't be the worst idea for him to show he can still play, but that doesn't appear to be in the cards.

Despite reports that Carmelo Anthony could sign with the New Zealand Breakers of Australia’s NBL, the league’s CEO says it’s not happening.
“Carmelo is a little beyond the Next Stars programme sadly,” Jeremy Loeliger said by email. “Not sure where those rumours started but as far as I’m aware, they’re just that, rumours.” Melo’s career is up in the air after playing just 10 games for the Rockets and getting waived by the Bulls on February 1st. When asked if he’d consider re-joining the Knicks if they sign Kevin Durant in free agency, Carmelo said that he would be open to the idea. And if the Knicks really end up signing two max-free agents like KD and Kyrie Irving, Anthony might be a good veteran player to have come off the bench on a low-end contract, as long of course as he’s willing to accept such a role.

Carmelo Anthony not ruling out a reunion with the Knicks saying, "I have to see what's going on," with a smile.
Whether Melo returns to the Knicks or any team for that matter, is ultimately not up to him after playing in just ten games this past season. Anthony's chances of resurfacing will improve if he is willing to come off the bench.

Carmelo Anthony played in 10 games for the Houston Rockets in 2018/19 before being traded to and waived by the Bulls.
Anthony did not end up getting picked up by a team and will now make for an interesting off-season story line relative to how bad he is. In his ten games, he hovered around top-200 value in 8 and 9-cat, but he obviously wasn't much of a factor in fantasy leagues this season.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers have paused their talks with Carmelo Anthony for the moment.
There have been rumors that the Lakers were interested in signing Anthony for the rest of the season, but it seems that the Lakers have bigger concerns at the moment after losing four out of their last five games. Anthony has close ties with LeBron James and this still makes the most likely scenario for Anthony to land on a team this season, but for this to happen the Lakers would have to turn their horrid play around and look to make playoffs.

The Lakers have an open roster spot after Thursday's trade of Ivica Zubac and Michael Beasley for Mike Muscala and will seriously consider using it to sign Carmelo Anthony.
This is coming from multiple outlets, so Anthony has a fairly high probability of ending up with the Lakers. It's going to be a strange fit to be sure but it's been rumored for quite some time now. There's unlikely to be much fantasy appeal if Melo ends up in L.A., though only if you're hunting for points in a deep league. That said, the Lakers will examine the full buyout market and make their decision from there. There will certainly be more effective players available but that hasn't stopped the Lakers before.

The Bulls waived Carmelo Anthony on Friday.
This was always on the cards for Melo, who will be looking for a new team (again). We have to assume he'll find a job somewhere, it just like won't be a fantasy-relevant spot.

The Carmelo Anthony trade has been finalized and also sees the Rockets sending the draft rights to Jon Diebler and $1.56 million to the Bulls in exchange for the draft rights to Tadija Dragicevic.
There's no fantasy impact here so let's take a spin through the two guys you probably haven't heard of before. Diebler, now 30, was the 51st overall pick in the 2011 draft after playing four years at Ohio State. He's since spent time playing in Greece and Turkey and currently plays for Darussafaka. Dragicevic is a 32-year-old forward who was drafted 53rd overall in 2008. Born in Serbia, he has played in Italy, Ukraine, France, Greece and Turkey. He was originally drafted by the Jazz but has seen his draft rights traded to the Mavs, Bulls and now Rockets.

Carmelo Anthony will not play a game for the Bulls and will be released once today's trade between the Bulls and Rockets becomes official.
As expected. Anthony will get to pick his destination once he clears waivers, which he certainly will. There's no sense in forecasting his fantasy outlook until he lands on a roster.

Carmelo Anthony has been traded to the Bulls.
Houston will also be sending cash to the Bulls in this deal. It'd be a shock if Melo suited up for Chicago at all and he's still not a fantasy option. Perhaps Houston will sign James Nunnally again now that Anthony's departure has opened up an extra roster spot. Nunnally had to be waived to make room for Kenneth Faried and this trade won't be official until tomorrow.
