The latest rumors has Anthony signing with the Knicks, but nothing is for sure as of yet. Kobe Bryant spoke about the possibility of playing with Carmelo at his annual basketball camp according to our own Serena Winters:

Bryant and Carmelo would give the Lakers an excellent core to build around. Many reports also have Pau Gasol returning to the team if Anthony comes to Los Angeles, giving the Lakers even more firepower. This is a huge moment for Anthony himself, and Bryant understands the magnitude of Anthony’s decision according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin:

Nothing is set in stone as of this moment, but the Lakers still have a lot of moves to make before this off-season. Whether or not the team gets Anthony, the Lakers will still have to fill out the rest of the roster.

There is also the question of who the next coach will be, as Byron Scott has long been considered the favorite and Bryant would be fine with that. The Lakers have done everything in their power to improve the team and Bryant seems ready to go. Anthony would only make the journey that much better.
