LeBron James Wants Lakers To Sign Carmelo Anthony

Brandon Ingram

James has not and will not make a request to Lakers president Magic Johnson or general manger Rob Pelinka to trade for Anthony, who can't be moved by trade until December 15 since he signed with the Rockets this offseason.

Anthony and the Houston Rockets "parted ways" after just 10 games.

LeBron James reportedly wants to team up with Carmelo Anthony-one of his best friends in the NBA-in L.A. LeBron is said to believe Anthony still has something to offer a young team such as the Lakers, as first reported by Joe Vardon of The Athletic.

The Ambanis - Mukesh, Nita Ambani, Ajay and Swati Piramal, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal were seen serving people at the function. Social media photos of the venues - the Oberoi Udai Vilas and City Palace, showed that they were decked up for grand celebration.

The New York Times' Marc Stein reports that the Lakers were "staunchly against the idea of adding Carmelo Anthony" coming into the season but since the Michael Beasley signing has not paid off they could be willing to bring the 10-time All-Star on board. Nor would there be.

James also believes Anthony would be a valuable piece for a young Lakers team.

James wants Anthony in L.A. They were two of the four players who took a vacation together when the famous Banana Boat photo was taken.

The night prior to Stefaniak's flight, she took an Uber downtown and was dropped off at an Airbnb in San Jose. Ms Stefaniak had planned to fly back to the U.S. the following day but never arrived for her flight.

With the Golden State Warriors expected to cruise to a third straight championship, much of the talk regarding James and the Lakers revolves around what player they might sign in 2019. As a result, negativity often rears its ugly head around James, as everyone witnessed during his infamous "Decision", his multiple coaching changes over the years and his ugly NBA Finals defeats.

Anthony's play was inconsistent through his first 20 games, but he still managed to have a 28-point performance during a road win against the Brooklyn Nets on November 2 and back-to-back 24- and 22-point games in late October losses against the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz.

The Lakers have "no interest" in acquiring Anthony, per a tweet by the Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner early Friday afternoon.
