Arguably the biggest name on the free agent market will be superstar Carmelo Anthony and the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be ready to give him their best sales pitch, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne:

Carmelo Anthony has yet to publicly reveal the process by which he plans to entertain other teams in free agency now that he has opted out of his contract with the New York Knicks, but the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers are among the teams that expect to have the opportunity to make their pitch to him starting July 1, according to sources close to the situation.

The Lakers brass have seemed uninterested in pursuing Anthony in free agency, but that stance may have changed after considering their limited options moving forward. Most expect Anthony to either land with the Chicago Bulls or Houston Rockets, but the Lakers may intrigue the perennial All-Star.

It’ll be a busy off-season for the Lakers with so many things needing to go their way in order to right the ship as soon as possible. Kobe Bryant is back in the fold for the next two years, but there’s no telling if the team will be able to surround him with the talent needed to contend for a title.

Bringing in Anthony would definitely improve the Lakers’ chances of contention in a highly competitive Western Conference, but the consensus seems to be that Kobe and Anthony would struggle to coexist in Los Angeles.
