How Carmelo Anthony’s net worth was built

With a professional basketball career that has spanned 13 year, Carmelo Anthony has developed his on-court skills while growing his net worth as well.

The Brooklyn native moved from New York to Virginia while he was in high school and attended the Oak Hill Academy. There, he was the top high school basketball player in the U.S. The All-American player headed back to New York state for college, leading the Syracuse Orange to the NCAA basketball title.

His impressive college performance sent him to declare in the 2003 NBA draft where he went third overall to the Denver Nuggets. In 2011, a three-man mega trade sent the 6-foot-8 forward to the New York Knicks.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Anthony’s net worth was $90 million as of May 2017.
