NBA’s Carmelo Anthony Signs With Los Angeles Lakers

NBA forward Carmelo Anthony will join the Los Angeles Lakers, his manager Bay Frazier told ESPN on Tuesday.   

The free-agent signed a one-year deal with the organization. He spent the last two seasons playing for the Portland Trail Blazers after being out of the NBA for a year, having played for the Houston Rockets before that.   

Anthony will join LeBron James on the Lakers. The two both entered the league in 2003.   

The former Denver Nugget, New York Knick, Houston Rocket and Oklahoma City Thunder player is No. 10 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, according to ESPN.   

He’s a 10-time All-Star and a three-time Olympic gold medalist. He’s earned more than $260 million in salary since he started playing professionally.   

Despite the accolades, Anthony has never played in the NBA Finals.
