Carmelo Anthony teaming up with LeBron James, Lakers

Carmelo Anthony will finally play on the same NBA team as longtime friend LeBron James.

The former Blazers forward and the Lakers have agreed to a one-year deal, his agent Bay Frazier confirmed to ESPN Tuesday.

Anthony also took to Instagram and Twitter to share a video of his name and logo, “Melo,” with the Lakers’ purple and yellow logo replacing the No. 7.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 37-year-old reportedly considered signing with the Knicks, with whom he spent seven seasons from 2010-2017.

Anthony, who is still chasing his first NBA title, joins the Lakers after finishing his 18th season, in which he averaged 13.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game off the bench, and shot a career-high 41 percent from three.

Anthony is just 39 points from tying Moses Malone for ninth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, and will likely do so a Laker.
