The Portland Trail Blazers will amend the contract of Carmelo Anthony so it becomes fully guaranteed immediately.
The Blazers had until early January to fully guaranteed Anthony's contract.
Anthony had signed a non-guaranteed, but he's played exceptionally well after a full year in NBA exile.
"Melo's been terrific for us," Terry Stotts said. "He's enjoying the experience. He's been a breath of fresh air for us that we needed."
