Lakers do not plan to waive any players to add Carmelo Anthony

Lakers do not plan to waive any players to add Carmelo Anthony

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the soon-to-be free agent Anthony still has the interest of the Lakers but the Lakers will not release a player they signed to a guaranteed contract. Although it surely would have been entertaining to see Melo in a Bulls jersey, as the team heavily pursued him in the summer of 2014, Anthony likely would have taken away valuable minutes from players such as Chandler Hutchison and Shaquille Harrison.

Anthony played in 10 games for Houston in 2018-19 before parting ways with the organization in November.


Anthony then signed with good friend Chris Paul and the Houston Rockets, but that experiment lasted just 10 games.

Now, with the history that LeBron and Melo, it was only obvious that a Carmelo Anthony to Lakers rumor would do the rounds before a final decision was announced. "It just wasn't a fit". Anthony wasn't great in his only season with the Thunder. The Rockets have turned their season around since their slow start. As a result, Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni is less than pleased because the surging Western Conference franchise was forced to make an additional transaction in order to add former Denver Nuggets and Brooklyn Nets big man Kenneth Faried to the fold. "He tried everything he could". I just thank him for his professionalism.
