Some sources foresee former scoring champ Carmelo Anthony’s return and pointed out possibilities of him joining either Anthony Davis and the Lakers or Kevin Durant and the Knicks.

Carmelo Anthony appeared online just two days after the massive Lakers-Davis deal, and sources said it could be a convenient way of hinting at a return. According to New York Post, a video of Melo in the gym “conveniently” surfaced online just two days after the Davis trade hit the news. In the video, the Anthony was draining three-pointers from all cylinders, which seem to prove that the 10-time all-star has still got it. The video was captioned: “Carmelo just doesn’t miss.”

As Melo and LeBron are good friends and the Lakers reportedly still looking for additional stars in their line-up, sources claimed that there is a good chance the Lakers and Melo could work out in the near future. It was also pointed out that LA will likely be able to sign players on veteran’s minimum contracts to complete the rest of the roster since the team could sign a max-level free agent anytime soon.

On another social media platform, a rumor of Melo returning to Knicks was also posted. The post unveiled that the 35-year-old NBA veteran has “not ruled out” a return to the New York Knicks.

With that buzz now spreading, the Kevin Durant and Melo team-up is somehow possible, especially with Durant continuously being linked to the Knicks this offseason.

This is not the first time Melo has been linked to the Lakers and the Knicks. About three months ago, reports claimed that many felt the former Knicks star’s last stop is LA where he could join his buddy LeBron but for some reason, it never happened.

At some point, it was also pointed out that New York is evidently recuperating its roster and is also possible to sign Melo since the team has been reportedly recruiting free agents this summer, Clutch Points reported.

To this day, Melo is still considered a great scorer and an asset even though he did not go well with the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder during the latter part of his NBA career. But now that most NBA teams are recruiting free agents, even if it’s not LA or New York, there is still a chance that a team would consider Melo.
