Although no other interested teams have been told they are out of contention for Anthony, all signs appear to be pointing toward the Lakers and Knicks, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein:

Apparently, Carmelo’s meeting with the Lakers on Thursday left quite the impact on the star forward. Most people believed that the Knicks always had the edge in talks with Anthony due to the $129 million they could offer, but it seems as though the Lakers brass left an impression that could ultimately have him landing in Los Angeles.

Carmelo is said the taking the weekend to make his decision leading most to believe a decision will be made by Monday. According to Stein, it could take longer:

At this point in time, it would be safe to say the Knicks are still the favorite to sign Carmelo. The superstar would make more money in New York and is already comfortable in his surroundings, but Los Angeles has obviously intrigued him.

Only time will tell if Mitch Kupchak and company were able to do enough to convince the superstar to go move from the Big Apple to Hollywood.
