On Wednesday, the Lakers were granted a disabled player exception worth $1.75 milion for the upcoming season. Essentially, it allows them to bring in another player in wake of the DeMarcus injury.

As suspected, Carmelo Anthony's name has come up as a possible candidate to fill that recently opened roster-spot. The 35-year-old star has yet to find an NBA home since being exiled from Houston and Oklahoma City. His declining skillset and stubborn mindset have diminished his value as a player. Lakers fans in particular seem to like the idea of giving him another chance.

Melo has been linked to the Lakers for months. His relationship to LeBron and their need for some bench scoring offered a unique opportunity for the two sides to pair up. Essentially, the Lakers went in another direction.

But could they look his way again?
