Report: NBA teams eye LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony pairing

Several NBA teams are attempting to make sufficient salary-cap space in order to pair Carmelo Anthony with LeBron James.

After LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony both opted out of their contracts, multiple teams in the NBA have begun the process of attempting to sign them both.

Any interested team would have to explore roster moves which would help create sufficient salary-cap space to sign the duo this summer.

While the Miami Heat will attempt to retain James, both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks are considering clearing enough cap space to be able to recruit both stars, ESPN reports.

The Los Angeles Lakers are also reportedly attempting to make room in order to pair Anthony and James with Kobe Bryant next season.
