Carmelo Anthony, PF

The face of the franchise has been forced to bear the brunt of the Knicks’ woes.

If he meshes with Rose, Noah and Lee, and he adequately mentors Porzingis, these struggles should be placed on the back burner.

SCOUTING REPORT

Melo has a true knack for finding his shot and beating his defenders one-on-one. He has a quick, nice release, the size of a power forward and the skills of a guard. He’s a solid passer who takes charge and grabs rebounds.

His defensive intensity has always been questioned, and his shooting percentage has never been in the top-tier of the league. He’s not known particularly for his three-point prowess, and he’s suffered his fair share of injuries.
