Carmelo Anthony didn't give Lakers a timetable for final decision


The Los Angeles Lakers wrapped up their big meeting with Carmelo Anthony on Thursday and they apparently feel pretty good about things. Kobe Bryant missed the meeting but will have an impromptu get together with his friend to technically give Los Angeles two meetings but no matter how many meetings they had, there have no idea when to expect word on if Melo is signing with them or not.

According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, the Lakers weren’t given an exact timetable for when to expect a decision by Carmelo following their near three hour meeting on Thursday.

“Update: After their meeting with Carmelo Anthony, the Lakers were not told when they could expect a decision”

This should have been expected but it sounds a lot worse than it might actually be. It’s unclear when Melo is going to make his decision or if he informed either the Bulls, Rockets or Mavericks about a timetable in which to expect a final decision. The Lakers aren’t frontrunners in the least though, which means that hearing when Melo will make his decision does them the real good.

It has been reported that Melo will likely decide over the weekend where he wants to play and come out with a decision next week about where his future will take him.
