Despite rumors to the contrary, the Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly not interested in adding veteran free agent forward Carmelo Anthony, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Broderick Turner.

Anthony was recently deactivated by the Houston Rockets, who he opened the season with after a much hyped signing but failed to find a suitable role with.

The report states that Anthony’s camp called the Lakers “a while back,” but it didn’t go anywhere, and also stated that Lakers’ forward LeBron James, a close friend of Anthony’s, hasn’t talked to 
president of basketball operations Magic Johnson or general manager Rob Pelinka about bringing Anthony in.

James would like to see Anthony join the Lakers, but he hasn’t formally pushed the organization to make the move.

Anthony will eligible to be traded on December 15th.

When it comes to big man DeMarcus Cousins, the Los Angeles Lakers aren’t ready to close the book on him playing during the 2019-2020 season.

Lakers’ head coach Frank Vogel discussed the team holding out hope that Cousins could take the court sometime this season.

“We’ve not closed the door on that,” Vogel said, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “We’ll just — we’re going to be a wait and see. With these injuries that are long rehabs, you have to see and take it kind of month to month and see where he’s at. But we’ve not closed the door on a possible return for him.”

The Lakers turned to signing Dwight Howard in the wake of Cousins’ injury, and were granted a disabled player exception as Cousins was initially believed to likely be unavailable until June 15th, 2020.

Now, it appears the Lakers are expecting Cousins to make back to the courts sometime, perhaps during a playoff run, this season.
