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.

Anthony Davis

Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis isn’t short on confidence, and he believes he is the very best in the world.

Although he didn’t win much during his tenure with the New Orleans Pelicans, nor has he ever won a championship, Davis is likely to be in title contention on his new team, the Lakers.

“I’m the best in the world,” Davis proclaimed, according to Alam Abdeldaiem of Sports Illustrated. “I think I do a lot of things that a lot of players can’t do as far as playing a complete game. I can play on the block, play on the perimeter, play defense on both ends, switch 1-5, guard, score the basketball. I want to be the most dominant player in the game, and I’m going to continue to do that.”

Davis also considers other players on the same level as himself, including his teammate LeBron James.

“Obviously you have players like Kawhi, KD, LeBron, Steph all of those guys who are the same way. They’re great players, talented players, Hall of Famers, and that’s what makes our game fun. Everyone wants to be the best in the league. Everyone wants to be the most dominant, and that’s when our competitive edge comes out on the floor and makes the game so fun to watch.”
