The speculation has kicked into high gear with many anticipating decisions from superstars LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony on Wednesday or possibly Thursday.

According to Frank Isola of New York Daily News, Carmelo may have already made that decision:

A person close to Anthony told The News on Wednesday that barring a last minute change of heart Anthony will re-sign with the Knicks after “agonizing over this” for the past week.

After Carmelo met with the Los Angeles Lakers last week, the consensus was that the Knicks and Lakers were the frontrunners for his services. Anthony had apparently not ruled out any of the interested teams, but did have Los Angeles and New York atop his list of destinations.

Of course, Isola’s report is still only speculation with the source being a supposed friend of the superstar, but it wouldn’t be all that surprising if it turned out to be true. The Knicks were always considered to be in the lead to land Carmelo, but so many questions surround the immediate future of the squad in New York with Phil Jackson and company having little to work with in terms of upgrading the roster.

On Thursday, teams around the league can make deals with free agents official. LeBron James and Carmelo will likely announce their intentions either later today or at some point tomorrow.

LeBron is without a doubt the biggest name on the free agent market, but Carmelo is also considered a game-changer and a player that the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Lakers were hoping to bring in.
