LeBron James still wants to play with Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony

LeBron James is not putting pressure on his Los Angeles Lakers to acquire Carmelo Anthony, but he’d be happy if they did.

LeBron and Carmelo were seen dining together while the Lakers were in New York for their Tuesday night game against the Brooklyn Nets. That led to a question after the Lakers’ loss to the Nets about James’ desire to play with Anthony.

James and Anthony were in the same 2003 NBA Draft class and are part of the same friend group that also includes Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul. James’ people have made it known via media reports that they’d like Anthony on the Lakers, but nothing has happened on that front.

Anthony is currently on leave from the Houston Rockets after his brief stint with them turned into a bust. There is some thinking that his NBA future is in question.
