Is Melo a realistic option?

How about an option for "No, he is washed up and has a fork sticking out of his back"?

Hard no.

And I'm seeing nothing on the ESPN site that links Carmelo to the Lakers.

Hell no. Melo is bad for chemistry and is terrible defensively. He brings only scoring but at the detriment of ball movement

Aside from the AD trade, everything else has been pretty predictable from our FO. This isn't surprising. Imo, it's a No.

idk. depends on if he's a 40% 3pt shooter.. which we wouldn't know until he got on the floor. Really think he's been humbled and would be willing to play a small-ish role, 15mpg (I'm sure he'd prefer 20mpg). Depends on locker room dynamic, but most importantly depends on his shooting. Honestly it might boost Bron's mood. I'd consider it about as seriously as the Lakers are.

I don’t mind Carmelo especially if he plays in a role that gives him the confidence to thrive and he helps the team win in certain nights.

Kyle Kuzma
Carmelo Anthony
McGee/Cousins
Quinn Cook
Daniels
Dudley

We will have a LEGIT bench but again it depends if Melo accepts a role he can help the team in.

Hard pass for me.. We already got more then enough offensive fire power.. If anything we need more defense.. We already have 4 guys who can legitimately get 30+ on any given night without anyone being surprised. Kuzma is pretty much playing the only role I could envision Melo playing for this team.

On top of all that this Locker Room is already going to have A LOT of ego to keep happy and in check. I think we'll be fine in the current state but i'd rather not add the new woe is me Melo. Funny how this comes out right after playing victim to Stephen A. Smith. Let him do his farewell tour anywhere else but here.

Melo goes with the Lakers like like warm, week-old Merlot goes with spicy yellowtail sashimi.

You must of ate your Wheaties and had a great cup of coffee, with that intelligent commentary

I agree there is a little intrigue with Melo as part of the bench mob, but keep inind there are still a few players unsigned that may be a better fit, and then there is the trade deadline to fine tune our line ups in preparation for playoff rotations

Melo is a huge net negative. Im praying a team like the Clippers sign him and he sabotages their season.
