The Los Angeles Lakers remain interested in adding Carmelo Anthony if he was waived by the Chicago Bulls, although the Lakers will not waive one of their current players to open up a roster spot.

The Bulls will not immediately waive Anthony as they search for a one-for-one trade before the deadline.
They will waive Anthony if they cannot find a trade partner.
The Lakers would then be a potential destination for Anthony if they open up a spot before or after the trade deadline.
If I’m the Lakers I’m giving Melo a shot.
Are all you Lakers fans emotionally prepared to have your team sign Carmelo Anthony after the Bulls buy him out?
