Don’t close the book on Carmelo Anthony‘s career … because his wife Lala Anthony tells TMZ Sports he’ll DEFINITELY be back on a roster next season.
Lala was out in NYC when we asked about her hubby’s NBA status — considering he hasn’t been on the court since 2018 and some people think he’s done for good.
But, Anthony is only 34-years-old and he’s been training hard recently — so, we had to know if Lala expects to see Melo back in the league when the 2019-20 season kicks off.
“Why wouldn’t we?” Lala said … adding, “Facts!”
So, where she think Melo will land???
“Whatever team is gonna appreciate him!”
There’s talk Anthony could return to the Knicks — where he played for 7 seasons before he was traded to the OKC Thunder in 2017.
Anthony later spent a minute in Houston in 2018 before being traded to the Chicago Bulls, where he was waived on Feb. 1.
Unclear if Lala’s statement will come to fruition — but one thing’s for sure … Carmelo ain’t ready to hang ’em up yet.
