Free Agency Dominoes Falling- Carmelo Anthony Eliminates Lakers

Today’s free agency news has thus far been incredibly hectic. The news has broken Lebron James will be returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers, almost immediately after news broke that Chris Bosh and the Houston Rockets are working to get a deal done as soon as possible, Kevin Love is now intrigued by the Cavaliers and would welcome a trade there, and the Houston Rockets are now looking to trade Jeremy Lin. All of this chaos has put Carmelo Anthony’s decision on the back-burner.

However Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report tweeted out that the Los Angeles Lakers are eliminated from contention to land Carmelo Anthony’s service and the decision comes down to the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks. Stephen A Smith confirmed the report.

Seeing the Lakers eliminated from contention is not shocking in the slightest. Though they could offer a maximum deal, Anthony’s annual salary would be less than it would have been in New York and he would have been entering a team with a worse chance to make the postseason than New York.

At this point there is no information known regarding which way Anthony is leaning, however a decision should be coming soon as free agency dominoes are starting to fall rapidly.
