REPORT: CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard ‘Have Done a Good Job of Recruiting Carmelo Anthony’

Carmelo Anthony and CJ McCollum have been working out and taking part in runs together down in NYC and it’s given CJ some time to try to convince Melo to waive his no-trade clause to potentially join the Blazers. Damian Lillard has also reportedly been apart of the recruiting. Report via Adrian Wojnarowski:

“Portland is an interesting team in this because CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard have done a really good of recruiting Carmelo,” Wojnarowkski told Russillo. “They’ve been on him. McCollum is in New York, you saw the video of [McCollum and Anthony] playing pickup. Selling [Anthony] on ‘Hey, look what our team could look like with you.’… but that’s incumbent ultimately on can Portland put a package together that appeals to New York?

“But if they could, then that’s a sleeper team in this to get Carmelo to waive his no-trade because I’m told they’ve piqued Carmelo’s interest at the very least.”
