With Carmelo Anthony still a free agent, New York Knicks legend Walt “Clyde” Frazier hopes the future Hall of Famer has one more chance.

Current and former players everywhere believe Carmelo Anthony deserves one more season. Add Walt “Clyde” Frazier to the list of names to endorse Melo.

The New York Knicks legend thinks that Melo’s past may have something to do with his current status as a free agent.

“Well you know with your past,” Frazier told Brandon Robinson of “People will say that he was arrogant at one point in his career and the way of getting revenge or something.”

Anthony’s recent stops with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets didn’t work out as planned. Melo only played 10 games for Houston before he was exiled last season.

For what it’s worth, Frazier hopes Melo has the chance for a proper farewell.

“I hope so man,” Frazier said. “I don’t like what’s happening to him. He should have a swan song. I’m confident that somebody will give him a chance.”

Most teams have already filled out their roster, but there is one franchise that seems to be gaining traction—the Brooklyn Nets. Wilson Chandler’s 25-game suspension is a significant blow to Brooklyn’s frontcourt depth.

The Nets need a stretch-four option and Anthony is one of the few players on the market who fit the bill. Brooklyn will have to wait until Nov. 2 to sign Melo. Chandler will move to the suspended list after five games, thus opening a spot on the roster for the Nets to sign Anthony.
