Report: Carmelo Anthony to Meet with the Los Angeles Lakers

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the Los Angeles Lakers have expressed interest in New York Knicks small forward Carmelo Anthony and will meet with the All-Star on Thursday. 

Anthony, who has a home in the Los Angeles area, will first meet with the Chicago Bulls during what promises to be an extensive tour of NBA cities. In addition to that, the New York Knicks have expressed confidence that they will have an opportunity to pitch Anthony during the courting process.

We likely can’t expect a quick solution here, as Anthony is looking at cashing in on what promises to be the final max contract of his NBA playing career. The 30-year-old small forward averaged 27.4 points and a career high 8.1 rebounds per game for the Knicks last season.
