Will Carmelo Anthony join the Los Angeles Lakers via a trade or a buyout?
“I don’t think anyone would trade for Melo, not even a minor trade,” a league source told me through a text message last night.
“He’d be great for the Lakers. LeBron can convince him to play off the bench.”
The Los Angeles Lakers have also been deliberate in watching their cap space too.
LA added savvy veterans like Tyson Chandler into the fold along with Michael Beasley and Rajon Rondo during the offseason.
“That’s a wait and see thing in L.A.”
Sounds like Melo! https://t.co/KDwr2j5DoP

I remember when the Bad Boy Pistons acquired Mark Aguirre and people said it wouldn’t work?
LeBron James liked the post on Instagram.
According to two sources with knowledge of Anthony’s situation, the exiled 10-time All-Star who remains on the Houston Rockets roster has multiple options available and is expected to pick one before the Feb. 7 trade deadline. There is no clarity as to whether he would be traded in these scenarios or waived and subsequently signed, but there are strong signs that he will play in the NBA again.
