Carmelo in Lakers uniform in 2014? Not so fast

While Carmelo Anthony admits owning purple and gold shoes, don’t expect to see the NBA superstar in a Lakers uniform anytime soon.

When recently asked if he could see himself playing for L.A. in 2014, Anthony told TMZ, “Ummm, I doubt it.”

The Lakers will reportedly go after both Carmelo and LeBron James to beef up their roster for a run in the 2014-15 season.

Anthony, who has a $23.3 million player option with the Knicks in 2014-15, said that he’s not plotting in secret to join a super team with LeBron, but added that the two play very well together.

While this news may come as a shock to already wounded Lakers fans, fear not, as anything can, and probably will, happen when free-agency negotiations begin next summer.
