From NBA media reports

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have long been NBA opponents. Will they be teammates before all is said and done?

After playing together only in multiple All-Star games and Team USA gold medal runs, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony just might join forces in Los Angeles.

According to Joe Vardon of The Athletic, James is interested in reuniting with Anthony, his friend and fellow 2003 Draft class member.

James and his camp still believe Anthony can play, that there could be a place for him as a contributor on a Lakers team that is young and continues to battle injuries.

Anthony is still technically with the Houston Rockets, but player and team have mutually agreed to part ways. If and when that formally occurs, it appears the 10-time All-Star could have another home ready and waiting if James' desire comes true. 

But Lakers fans should hold off on getting Anthony jerseys. According to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Lakers' front office has no interest in adding the veteran forward.

Lakers have no interest in acquiring Carmelo Anthony, per sources. Sources said people want to attach players to Lakers now. Sources said Melo people called Lakers a while back and that LeBron hasn’t talked to Lakers prez Magic Johnson/Rob Pelinka about getting Melo.
