Joel Anthony To Play In Argentina

Veteran NBA center Joel Anthony is set to continue his playing career internationally. Anthony has signed with San Lorenzo de Almagro in Argentina, the team announced today via Twitter (hat tip to Sportando).

Anthony, 35, has appeared in 490 regular season games over the course of his NBA career for the Heat, Celtics, Pistons, and Spurs. The big man also played in another 66 postseason games, primarily for the Heat — he won a pair of titles with Miami.

While Anthony was a respected presence in the locker room throughout his NBA career, he never posted big numbers. For his career, he had averages of 2.2 PPG, 2.8 RPG, and 1.1 BPG in 14.4 minutes per contest.

Anthony was last seen in camp with the Bucks this past fall, but didn’t earn a regular-season roster spot with Milwaukee.
