Anthony was waived by the Bucks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony was also waived by the Spurs to begin the 2016-17 campaign before ultimately signing a pair of 10-day contracts with the team mid-season, which led to a deal to finish the year with the club. It remains to be seen if he will get that type of opportunity with the Bucks or if the veteran will be forced to look for new opportunities elsewhere.

Anthony signed a training camp contract with the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

After being waived by the Spurs at the start of the 2016-17 campaign, Anthony ended up signing a pair of 10-day contracts with San Antonio in January, eventually inking a deal for the rest of the season. He played in just 19 games, posting averages of 1.3 points and 1.6 rebounds across 6.4 minutes. Looking ahead to 2017-18, Anthony will join Milwaukee for training camp and will battle for the final roster spot with the likes of Kendall Marshall, Gerald Green, Gary Payton, James Young and Brandon Rush. That being said, the 10-year veteran faces long odds at this point.

Anthony produced no points, two rebounds and one block across five minutes in a 102-92 loss to the Thunder on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony has appeared in the Spurs' last two games, but has seen a combined nine minutes. The veteran finds himself behind LaMarcus Aldridge, Dewayne Dedmon, Pau Gasol, David Lee and Davis Bertans on the Spurs' frontcourt depth chart, so he won't have much opportunity to see his playing time increase over the final month of the regular season.

Anthony was signed by the Spurs for the remainder of the season on Sunday, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony was signed to a pair of 10-day contracts prior to landing a deal for the rest of the season. He's averaged 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds across 6.3 minutes per game in his eight games with San Antonio.

Anthony signed a second 10-day contract with the Spurs on Thursday, Jabari Young of San Antonio Express-News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony played a very small role with the Spurs during his first 10-day contract, playing in three games, while averaging 1.3 points and 1.7 rebounds across 5.3 minutes. However, the Spurs are still dealing with some injuries in the frontcourt, with both LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) and Pau Gasol (finger) sitting out, so Anthony should continue to serve as another depth option in the frontcourt to make up for the lack of bodies.

Anthony officially signed a 10-day contract with the Spurs on Monday, Mike Monroe of The Rivard Report reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reports surfaced over the weekend that Anthony would join the Spurs, and now he'll formally be added to the 15-man roster. Anthony should provide some depth at center while Pau Gasol (finger) is out indefinitely, but don't expect him to be a regular member of coach Gregg Popovich's rotation.

Anthony will sign a 10-day deal with the Spurs, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Pau Gasol (hand) expected to miss considerable time, the Spurs will bring in the veteran to add depth to the frontcourt. Anthony, who has not played in the NBA this season, spent several years with the Heat before stops in Boston and Detroit. The 34-year-old is highly unlikely to see enough minutes to attain fantasy relevance.

Anthony was waived by the Spurs on Saturday, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Spurs didn't bring any only players to camp to compete with Anthony for the third-string center role, but they're apparently comfortable enough with either LaMarcus Aldridge or David Lee sliding over from power forward when starting center Pau Gasol and top backup Dewayne Dedmon aren't on the floor. It could be the end of the line for Anthony, who only played 19 games with the Pistons in 2015-16 and at age 34, will only see his meager skills depreciate from here.

Anthony is in the process of agreeing to a training camp deal with the Spurs, Jabari Young of MySanAntonio.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anthony has career averages of 2.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks across nine seasons. The veteran center may be a longshot to make it on the Spurs' final opening night roster as the center position is locked up by Pau Gasol, Dewayne Dedmon, and David Lee, but if he does, he'll be used for depth purposes.

Anthony was waived Sunday by the Pistons, Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

In order to clear room for the newly-signed Boban Marjanovic, who officially became a member of the Pistons on Sunday after the Spurs declined to match his three-year, $21 million offer sheet, Detroit dropped Anthony and Cameron Bairstow from the roster and renounced their rights to free agent Steve Blake. Even if he had remained on the roster, Anthony likely would have been no better than fourth on the depth chart at center behind Andre Drummond, Aron Baynes and Marjanovic. Now 33 and coming off a season in which he logged only 19 appearances, Anthony figures to attract sparse interest from other NBA teams.
