Chauncey Billups explains why Carmelo Anthony remains out of the NBA

Chauncey Billups believes he knows why Carmelo Anthony remains unsigned.

Anthony was a star with the Knicks and Nuggets but has not played in the NBA since he parted ways with the Rockets in mid-November.

“The reason he’s not in the league – because he’s still worthy – he hasn’t mentally taken that step back to say ‘Okay, I’ll come in and play against backups. I’ll try to help the team out. I know I might not be able to close, but I just want to help the team out,'” Billups said during a recent interview with SiriusXM radio. “He’s not there yet.”

Anthony averaged 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in his 10 games with the Rockets, who eventually traded him to the Bulls in January. Chicago immediately released him, and he has been a free agent since.
