“The Lakers discussed the signing of Anthony last season and now have one roster spot open, but appear to be an unlikely option. Kurt Rambis, who is now a significant part of the Lakers’ front office, was part of the Knicks’ Phil Jackson regime that had a tumultuous final stretch with Anthony. The Lakers have James and Kyle Kuzma as high-minute forwards and signed Jared Dudley. They also have a bevy of wing players in Danny Green, Avery Bradley and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who could provide versatility in the lineup. Does Anthony make sense on the roster as a spot player?” Charania reported.
This past season, Anthony played in 10 games and mostly came off the bench to score 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 assists, while shooting at 40.5 percent from the floor in 29.4 minutes of action.
