L.A. Lakers rumors have taken an interesting turn. How about Carmelo Anthony teaming up with LeBron James? That's what Tony Kornheiser, who is co-host of "Pardon the Interruption," just said on the November 12 episode of his show. It certainly looks possible, especially as Anthony's time with the Houston Rockets comes to an end.

Kornheiser referenced the request of LeBron James for the Lakers to get center Tyson Chandler. The team went out and got the veteran center, who has already made a huge impact with the team. Could LeBron soon request another teammate?

Maybe he has already spoken with the front office of the Lakers about a trade with the Rockets.

Carmelo Anthony struggled with Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets are having a terrible 2018-19 NBA season. The team has come out of the gate really slowly, leading to the need to find a scapegoat. This is where Carmelo Anthony enters the situation, as this is his first year with the team. In 10 games with the Rockets this season, Anthony is averaging 13.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. He is doing it in 29.4 minutes a night and on just 40.5 percent shooting from the field.

So, is it the fault of Anthony that the Rockets cannot string together victories? Or is it just bad timing, with the Rockets dealing with injuries and suspensions to start out the new year?

The Rockets are just 5-7 on the season, which has them even below the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference standings. That's not where experts thought that a team led by James Harden, Chris Paul, and Carmelo Anthony would be residing.

Anthony to Lakers trade rumors

During the NBA offseason, Anthony signed a one-year deal with the Rockets.

This was after he got waived by the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks bought him out of that deal, allowing him to sign with a new team. Anthony took a pay cut and agreed to roughly $2.4 million from the Rockets this year. Due to the slow start, there have now been rumors that Anthony has played his final game for the Rockets. Now what?

The Rockets could easily trade Anthony to the Lakers, which could be a deal that might work for both sides. While the Rockets could remove a potential headache, the Lakers could add a friend of LeBron James to the roster. James recently spoke about how he was frustrated with the start the Lakers have had, but the team is starting to turn a corner. Could Anthony help them in the short-term process of getting better this year?

Another question, here, is whether Carmelo Anthony wants to play for the Los Angeles Lakers or not. Maybe he doesn't want to go to another rebuilding team, which would be similar to when he spent years with the New York Knicks. Tony Kornheiser is convinced that LeBron will ask the Lakers to bring on Anthony.

After missing out on Paul George, who is still playing for the Indiana Pacers, Melo could bring some additional star power to Los Angeles. Fans might enjoy watching LeBron and Melo run the court together, much as they did as members of Team USA.
