Carmelo reportedly eyeing LeBron, Lakers

Carmelo Anthony has the chance to play with LeBron James on the Lakers high on his priority list.

One of Carmelo Anthony’s preferred destinations is Los Angeles, specifically, the Lakers, according to a report.

Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports reports Anthony would relish an opportunity to play with his close friend, LeBron James, who departed the Cleveland Cavaliers to agree on a three-year deal with a fourth-year player option for $154 million total with the Lakers last Sunday night.

Schultz reports Anthony, like James, already owns a home in Los Angeles. James, in fact, owns two.

Anthony and the Oklahoma City Thunder agreed Friday that they will be parting this summer. Anthony’s exit will likely result in the Thunder saving more than $100 million.
