Talk of Carmelo Anthony joining his friend LeBron James in Los Angeles have heated up recently.  The latest to throw fuel on the fire is LeBron’s trainer, who took to Instagram with a post about the friends teaming up.

The Lakers star seemed to endorse the potential signing by liking his trainer’s post.

The Heavy’s Scoop B added more information to the Melo to the Lakers story:

“They may get Carmelo,” NBA insider, Chris Sheridan told me on the Scoop B Radio Podcast.

“That’s a wait and see thing in L.A.”

The Lakers have been deliberate in watching their cap space too! The Lakers want their flexibility for next season.”

That said, the Lakers have added savvy veterans like Tyson Chandler into the fold and they added Michael Beasley and Rajon Rondo during the offseason.

Anthony is a close friend to LeBron James, something many people believe he has in his favor.

“When the time is right he will speak out,” a source close to Carmelo Anthony told me via e-mail.

This is currently the worst kept secret in the NBA.  At this point Melo to Los Angeles is just a matter of time.

That purple and gold hoodie is going to pop.
