It’s been reported for weeks now that LeBron James wants the Lakers to sign his friend Carmelo Anthony.  According to NBA insider Scoop B, LeBron and his camp are insisting that the team signs him for the playoff push, but the team has other ideas.

Will Los Angeles cave to LeBron’s wishes?  That’s yet to be seen.  Melo was considered to be an option had they traded half of their team away to land Anthony Davis.  That doesn’t seem to be as likely now.

Plus the Lakers don’t need another guy in his 30s that doesn’t play any defense.
