Rumors have been circulating that the Miami Heat is trying to get Carmelo Anthony on their squad. It seems as though the team is trying to find room in their budget (like that will be difficult) to bring him to South Beach.
Anthony, who is now a free agent, has until June 23 to decide whether or not he will continue playing for the New York Knicks, according to ESPN. If the move does happen, the Big 3 of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh would see smaller salaries. Also, the Heat would have to wait until July 1 for any kind of contract to happen.
Sources say internal conversations within the Heat organization about pursuing this course have run concurrently with Miami’s bid to win a third consecutive championship, with sources adding that James in particular is likely to try to recoup potential salary sacrificed through fresh off-court business opportunities if the Heat’s new dream scenario does come to fruition.
