Future Hall of Famer Carmelo Anthony was aware that the Philadelphia 76ers were interested in signing him in free agency, but negotiations never moved forward. According to Anthony, the two parties never had a formal conversation. The 12-time All-Star eventually agreed to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he’ll play alongside his good friend LeBron James. In a recent interview with Yahoo!’s Chris Haynes, Anthony discussed his numerous free agency options, including interest from the Sixers and the New York Knicks. Sports:
