Hawks grant Carmelo Anthony's wish, send him Atlanta jersey

Even though Anthony was a Hawk for only a couple weeks and never suited up for the team, he wanted his own jersey.

The Hawks have granted Carmelo Anthony's wish and sent him his own Atlanta jersey, despite never suiting up for the team.

Anthony previously said that he wanted his own Hawks jersey with his name on it, most likely as a collection piece.

The forward was traded to the Hawks from the Thunder, then the Hawks waived Anthony so he reportedly could sign with the Rockets.

Anthony will give back $2.4 million of his $27.9 million salary for 2018-19, which he'll get back once he signs a veteran minimum deal.
