Lakers rumors: Carmelo Anthony linked to Brooklyn Nets by NBA exec

If Lakers fans need more proof of how bad last year’s bench was, the five veterans on the 2021-2022 Lakers roster are still free agents — in late August. Including, 10-time All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony.

To his credit, Carmelo was one of the few bright spots on the Lakers bench last year. The Lakers signed him to increase his scoring ability, and Anthony did just that. The future Hall of Famer and member of the NBA’s 75th Anniversary team averaged 13.3 points and 37.5 percent from 3-point range in 69 games last season.

Despite speculation that the Lakers are still open to the idea of ​​bringing Carmelo back, an NBA executive thinks the Nets could also sign Anthony (from Thomas Darro of quoted).

” There’s been some talk of them [Brooklyn] signing Carmelo Anthony, maybe as a nod to Kevin Durant, but apparently that hasn’t made any progress, at least Not yet.”

Darro pointed out that in the past, Durant has been eager to play alongside Anthony to a certain extent.

Considering Durant’s recent request to Nets owner Tsai Chongxin, he will only play for Brooklyn next year if both GM Sean Marks and the head coach are fired and Tsai Ing-wen then The response said that Max and Nash had his “full support”, and it seemed that the organization let KD call the shots and completed the anization. That might dissuade the Nets from signing Melo to appease Durant.

Right now, Carmelo is relatively quiet about his future plans, but a contract extension with the Lakers isn’t quite over yet.
