Lakers Rumors: Carmelo Anthony Wants to Test Free Agency
- Updated: October 16, 2013
New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said in an interview that he would like to opt out of his contract this summer and test free agency.
“I want to be a free agent,” he told the New York Observer.
“I think everybody in the NBA dreams to be a free agent at least one time in their career,” Anthony said.
He has two years remaining on his current contract but can opt out of the final season, which is worth $23.3 million. If he signs with the Knicks he can sign for 5-years/$129,135,806. If he signs elsewhere he can get a maximum contract of 5-years/$95,897,372.
Anthony told TMZ that “he doubts” he will join the Lakers but does own a pair of purple and gold Jordans.
He played for Lakers coach Mike d’Antoni before he was relieved of his duties, but could be set for a reunion if he elects for free agency.
The Lakers will be looking for somebody to replace Kobe Bryant as the face of the franchise in years to come. But they are committed to d’Antoni, a move that could spell the end to any rumor surrounding Anthony to Los Angeles.
But after all, weirder things have happened.
Stay tuned, this is a developing story.
