Now, it appears that they will be in the mix for another vet: Carmelo Anthony.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are reportedly ready to part ways with Anthony in order to ease their tax burden this season and there are three teams in the mix to land the 34-year-old forward. The Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Miami Heat are all interested, but perhaps Anthony’s relationship with James will give Los Angeles an edge.

With the possibility of adding Anthony rising, Trevor Lane breaks down how he could fit with the new-look Lakers. Los Angeles’ starting five appears to be rather full, which could make Houston the favorite since they have a hole to fill after losing Trevor Ariza this summer, but there is still reason to believe that Anthony could opt to come to L.A.

Several questions exist should he make the jump, with the first being whether or not Anthony is willing to take a role coming off the bench. If he is, it’s possible that Anthony could be a positive contributor for Los Angeles.
