Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant admits that he "would love" to have forward Carmelo Anthony as a teammate.

Kobe Bryant has admitted that he "would love" Carmelo Anthony to join the Los Angeles Lakers this off-season.

The forward opted out of the final year of his contract with the New York Knicks in order to test free agency, and met with the Lakers last week.

The shooting guard told ESPN: "I would love to play with him. We've really clicked since 2008, and I would love to see him out here [in Los Angeles].

"They're going for it. There's no ifs ands or buts about it, they're being extremely aggressive and they have solid concepts and plans to be able to get it done. They're pulling out all the stops to ensure that we put on a contender on the floor next year.

"Obviously depending on the timing of this process, it affects some of those. You have a plan that's flexible, but you have a Plan A and a Plan B. But some of the Plan B is affected by the timing of Plan A. So, you just kind of plan it out and wait and see what happens and respond from there. Plan B is a solid plan. You just have to play the waiting game a little bit and see how things shake out."

Bryant missed all but six games during the 2013-14 season with Achilles and knee injuries.
