On Wednesday, ESPN reported that Carmelo Anthony is expected to meet with the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and Chicago Bulls once free agency begins on July 1. While the Los Angeles Lakers are not on Anthony’s current list, Kobe Bryant plans to recruit the All-Star forward according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard:

Though the Los Angeles Lakers are not on Anthony’s current list, Kobe Bryant plans to recruit him to the team. Bryant, who is close with Anthony, spoke to him by telephone when they were in separate parts of Europe earlier this week.

Bryant told ESPN.com in a text message that he plans to meet with Anthony, as well.

While there were conflicting reports on the Lakers’ interest in Anthony for much of the season, the Lakers were expected to be one of many teams to make their sales pitch once he opted out of his contract on Monday. Although Los Angeles has the cap room to sign him, Anthony would consider the Lakers if they “strengthened” the roster this off-season.

For the Lakers, they face their most important off-season in nearly a decade. With the seventh pick in the NBA Draft tomorrow, the Lakers are most likely going to keep the pick, but may be looking at other options, like packaging it with Steve Nash to clear some cap space.
