3 teams that should avoid signing Carmelo Anthony
#2 Los Angeles Lakers
Carmelo Anthony has been linked with the Los Angeles Lakers ever since being told to find a new team by the Houston Rockets, and LeBron James has continually urged the organization to take a shot on the veteran. Nevertheless, the move is currently 'paused' due to the Lakers' faltering playoff push, and it looks increasingly unlikely that Melo will be wearing a Lakers uniform this season.
Nevertheless, rumors of a move for Anthony are likely to regain momentum in the summer, and the Lakers should remain cautious of adding the veteran. After all, the Lakers failed this season with veterans surrounding LeBron, and adding the ball dominant Anthony is unlikely to improve matters.
The Lakers also need to focus on improving their leaky defense, and the addition of a player who was released by the Rockets due to his inability to make stops is a bad idea.
