Carmelo Anthony's spell with the Houston Rockets lasted just 10 games

Carmelo Anthony has not played a competitive game of basketball since mutually agreeing to leave the Houston Rockets back in November, although the 10-time All-star has been mentioned as a possible member of Team USA's upcoming FIBA roster.

Several major names have already pulled out of the competition, and Kendrick Perkins believes Melo would embrace a return with the national team.

Anthony has won three Olympic Medals with Team USA, and the 35-year-old also leads the team in points and rebounds. The veteran has also been applauded for his willingness to take a lesser role with the national team, and Anthony is one of only a few individuals that has always made himself available for selection.

The Team USA training camp starts on August 5th in Las Vegas, while the competition itself will take place in September.
