So, the Lakers are making the obvious call of not acquiring Anthony, who’s in limbo while still on the Rockets’ roster.
Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times:
This always seemed like LeBron trying to help a friend, touting Anthony’s ability while the rest of the NBA appears finished with Anthony. Now, that theory appears even more likely.
The Lakers already have enough offensive-minded big forwards in LeBron, Kyle Kuzma and Michael Beasley. Beasley has struggled this season, but if Los Angeles needs a third quality player of that mold, I doubt Anthony is the answer.
