  • United States' Carmelo Anthony smiles as he walk up court during a men's basketball game against France at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro Brazil Sunday Aug. 14 2016

He was a very good worldwide player. He reportedly requested a chance to play for Team USA in the upcoming FIBA World Cup of Basketball, hoping to use the tournament as a launching pad back into the NBA, but director Jerry Colangelo declined that request.

The rejection from Team USA caps off what's been a frustrating summer for Anthony.

In an interview on Wednesday, Colangelo expressed deep respect and appreciation for Anthony's contributions to USA Basketball.

"I love Carmelo", said Colangelo, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated. But for where we are and what we're doing, that conceivably could have been a distraction.

The process of building the United States team for this month's World Cup started last year with 35 players being added to the selection pool for the competition and next year's Tokyo Olympics. Anthony earned USA Basketball Male Athlete of the Year honors twice as an individual, and another as part of the 2008 Redeem Team, which won the honor after capturing gold, four years after its run of three straight golds was snapped. He's trying to re-establish himself.

Colangelo said Anthony made his request through a representative. He played 10 games early in the 2018-19 season for the Houston Rockets. He was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls and subsequently waived. "I think that has to be done in the".

He started his National Basketball Association career with the Nuggets, and spent just more than seven seasons with Denver before he was traded to the Knicks in 2011.
