Don’t be shocked to see ‘Melo in some exhibition games

This weekend Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Tyreke Evans and others will be in the Philippines for an exhibition game. Putting on a show for some fans in a basketball mad country.

There will be more exhibition gams like this, especially if the lockout drags on and games are missed. Expect to see Carmelo Anthony doing a few of them.

At least if what his manager Bay Frazier tweeted (via I am a GM).

I keep getting all these offers for @carmeloanthony to play overseas in exhibition games lol. And the paper aint bad at all.

There may be a barnstorming tour of China if the lockout extends to the point games are lost, but that may just be the best known of several in the works. Players — especially ones with big shoe contracts like ‘Melo — will find there way to these events as a way to promote their brand.
