Jim Boeheim Believes Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony Can Play Together
[new_royalslider id=”160″]

Heading into free agency, the Los Angeles Lakers did not have much of a chance to land Carmelo Anthony. However, after an impressive pitch meeting last Thursday, the franchise is considered to be the biggest threat to the New York Knicks. While the All-Star forward was expected to make his decision on Monday, everyone is patiently waiting to see what team he ultimately chooses.

If the Lakers do sign Anthony this summer, there will be a lot of questions if he and Kobe Bryant can play together considering the similar play styles. According to Anthony’s college coach, Jim Boeheim, he believes the two stars can play together in an interview on The Herd with Colin Cowherd:

Unlike the numerous teams that Anthony met with last week, the Lakers already have the cap space to sign him to a max contract of four years, $97 million. Along with Kobe and Julius Randle, there is belief Pau Gasol will also quickly re-sign should the franchise be able to land Anthony.

With the entire league waiting for Anthony and LeBron James’ decision, Los Angeles does have numerous options if they are unsuccessful in their pursuit. While they have lost some players from last year’s roster, players like Greg Monroe, Lance Stephenson, and Trevor Ariza are still available in this free agency market.
