It looks like LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony will finally become teammates in the NBA. Anthony announced on social media Tuesday that he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Anthony’s agent told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski that the contract is for one year.
Anthony averaged 13.4 points while playing 24.5 minutes per game for the Portland Trail Blazers this season. He’s still a solid scorer who should be able to help the Lakers in all three and should help solidify the bench.
After losing in the first round of the playoffs, the Lakers hope to win another championship next season. If James and Anthony Davis can stay healthy, and Russell Westbrook can put in his usual numbers, there is a chance that Anthony will finally win a ring before calling it a career.
The first two days in NBA free agency, the Lakers have done a great job renewing the roster. Now they’ve added Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza again, not to mention Anthony and Malik Monk. With all of these additions, the Lakers should be ready for their rematch tour this season.
