The Bulls are expected to waive Carmelo Anthony around the trade deadline.
The Lakers don’t want to waive one of the players with a guaranteed deal to make room for Carmelo Anthony.
Sources: The Lakers maintain interest in Anthony, but do not want to waive a guaranteed player to create a roster spot for him, league sources tell ESPN. If a roster spot eventually opens with LA, yes, the Lakers are a possible destination for Anthony.
