The Portland Trail Blazers have signed forward Carmelo Anthony to a non-guaranteed deal, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
This marks the first time in over a year that the 35-year-old will get a chance to retake the floor, proving he still has something left in the tank to help an NBA team.
Over his decorated 16-year career, Anthony has earned 10 All-Star appearances, six All-NBA honours, one scoring title and an All-Rookie nod. Outside of the NBA, he has become the most decorated men's basketball player in United States Olympics history with three gold medals and one bronze medal.
Ahead of Melo's return to the league, take a look at some of his best moments of his career!
Career-high 62 points vs. Charlotte Bobcats
On Jan. 24, 2014, Carmelo Anthony set Madison Square Garden on fire.
Anthony set the single-game scoring record in MSG history, dropping 62 points on the Bobcats. Melo was efficient, going 23-for-35 (65.7%) from the field, 6-for-11 (54.5%) from 3-point land and a perfect 10-for-10 from the free throw line. He also grabbed 13 rebounds to notch a double-double.
Although he didn't record a single assist, Anthony had zero turnovers in the standout performance.
Kobe Bryant had previously held the record for most points in an NBA game at The Mecca, scoring 61 points in a win over the Knicks in 2009. Melo beat that record by one point, while also edging Bernard King's record of 60 points for the most points scored by a Knicks player at MSG.
The most impressive part? Anthony checked out of the game with 7:18 on the clock in the fourth quarter with New York leading by 37 points. Had the contest been closer, it's hard to believe Melo would not have broken the 70-point mark with the way he had the hot hand in this one.

Battle vs. Kevin Durant for 2013 scoring title
Kevin Durant had won three-consecutive NBA scoring titles leading up to the 2012-13 NBA season. He was the best scorer on the planet and it appeared as though nothing would stop him from earning his fourth scoring title in as many years.
With seven games remaining in the NBA season, Durant led the league in points per game by a slim margin of 0.4 over Anthony as the two bucket-getters squared off in Oklahoma City.
Anthony out-scored Durant, dropping 36 points to KD's 27 points, taking a lead for the league's scoring title - a lead he would not surrender. Melo's 36 points led to a Knicks win. The All-Star forward ended the season with three more 30-point games before sitting the final two games of the season, giving him a league-best average of 28.7 points per game.
Durant finished that season averaging 28.1 points per game - second-most in the league - and went on to retain his spot as the league's best scorer the following season, averaging his career-high of 32.0 points per game.
Game-winner vs. LeBron James
Everyone knows that Anthony and LeBron James are the best of friends.
They've had a handful of memorable battles on the NBA stage, but this just might have been the best of all of them. Melo was leading the Denver Nuggets as one of the best teams in the West while LeBron had the Cleveland Cavaliers atop of the East.
Both players had been dominating the league for seven seasons to this point and the competitiveness within them brought out one of the best head-to-head matchups of the year.
James was in a zone that very few players can get to. He had a monster triple-double of 43 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds and knocked down a clutch and-1 to tie the game with just over 20 seconds remaining in overtime. Anthony, who finished the game with 40 points, seven assists and six rebounds, responded by burying the game-winning jumper over James to earn the win for the Nuggets.
It was a duel that these two players and best friends will likely remember for the rest of their lives.
