The Los Angeles Lakers, following a couple seasons that -- to put it mildly -- didn't exactly turn out the way they'd hoped, are positioning themselves to rebuild. Their consolation prize will be a nice pick in a stacked draft, and they will have lots of cap room this summer to dangle in front of free agents. Meanwhile, on the other end of the continent, Carmelo Anthony has experienced a couple similar seasons in New York, and is preparing for free agency.
It seems like a match made in heaven, but there are many reasons why Carmelo Anthony likely won't end up with the Lakers.
