Former New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is already working out and teaching his son Kiyan in the gym.

Carmelo Anthony would definitely prefer to be in the NBA then out of it. As of right now, no team seems to have any plans of signing him, but that won’t keep him from working on his game and improving.

And one individual he’s working with and teaching at the same time is his son, Kiyan. The 12-year-old tried to imitate what his father was coaching him, as shown on workout guru Chris Brickley’s Instagram on Monday.

Melo last played for the Houston Rockets, where he appeared in 10 games and started in two during the 2018-19 season. He was traded to the Chicago Bulls in late January of 2019 and was waived on Feb. 1 of that same year.

A Carmelo and New York Knicks reunion could’ve occurred if the Knicks signed two superstar free agents. However, the Knicks missed out on guys such as Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Kawhi Leonard. As a result, they gave short-term contracts to Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson, Julius Randle, Reggie Bullock, and Wayne Ellington. Not to mention, they drafted RJ Barrett and Ignas Brazdeikis as well.

Melo last played for the Knicks during the 2016-17 season. The Knicks traded him to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sept. 25, 2017, for Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott. He played in New York from 2011-17 prior to the trade.

It’ll be interesting to see what the next chapter is for Melo. Signs point to the fact that his time in the NBA could be over though.
