While there had been questions about whether or not the Lakers would be able to meet with Anthony, it now looks as if the Lakers will be one of the teams Anthony meets with. And according to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears, Anthony hopes to make his decision the second week in July:

New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony hopes to make a decision on where he will play next season in the second week of July after taking several free-agent visits, a source told Yahoo Sports […] A source said there is currently no frontrunner for Anthony’s services, and he is expected to meet with the Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks.

This is excellent news for the Lakers. While they do not have the immediate roster in place like the Bulls or Rockets, he and Kobe Bryant are good friends and Bryant has already reached out to his fellow Olympian.

With the selection of Julius Randle in last night’s draft, the Lakers have already begun their climb back to title contention and the addition of Anthony would greatly accelerate that process.

Nothing is for certain at this point and the Lakers will have to do an excellent job of convincing Anthony that Los Angeles is the right place for him, but the team appears to at least have a spot at the table.
