Anthony, 35, totaled 10 points and 5 rebounds in 24 minutes played. His listed +/- was a -20.
Anthony and the Trail Blazers agreed to a non-guaranteed deal on Friday. Based on the contract, for each day Anthony is on the roster, he will earn $14,490.
In the upcoming stretch, the NBA veteran will play against old teammates when the Trail Blazers take on the Chicago Bulls on Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder next Wednesday, and Chicago again next Thursday.
