It seems like Carmelo Anthony could make his to L.A. after all.

This afternoon The Atheltic’s Sam Amick reported that Melo is getting to choose his next destination and it’s likely that he will to sign with the Lakers.

According to Amick there are still some hurdles to jump for Melo to end up in L.A.

The Lakers, who have a full roster and would have to waive someone to sign him if he was waived, continue to be tied to Anthony more than any other team. But according to a Lakers source, the fact that the roster is full is not a small obstacle. Not only is it unclear how they would clear the roster spot to add Anthony, or if there’s a possible trade to be made there with the Rockets, but a source close to James said Anthony’s conditioning and the overall state of his game are considered key factors here in terms of convincing the Lakers to add the player who had the worst season of his career with the Thunder and wasn’t any better with the Rockets.

Lakers fans don’t seem to happy with the idea of Melo ending up with the Lakers.
