Over the past two days, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have decided to opt-out of their contracts to become unrestricted free agents on July 1. With the Los Angeles Lakers having cap room, they are expected to pursue both All-Star forwards.
Beginning July 1, the Lakers are among the teams that expect to have the opportunity to make their pitch to Anthony. With that being said, the latest rumor has Anthony considering the Lakers if they “strengthen” the roster this summer.
As for James, the Lakers are “hopeful” to get an opportunity to talk to the four-time MVP. However, most believe he will either stay with the Miami Heat or return home to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
