Sources: LeBron James wants Cavs to get Carmelo Anthony

Following a 124-122 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night LeBron James, as expected wasn’t too happy.

“It’s great to have bodies,” James said. “Obviously, in the playoffs, you go down to what, eight max? And if somebody gets in foul trouble, you go to nine. You’re not playing back-to-backs. You have two days in between. You’re able to lock in. … It’s like when you don’t have bodies. It’s tough. The f–king grind of the regular season. We’re a top-heavy team. We have a top-heavy team.

James later took to Twitter to address his post game comments saying the following,

Cleveland management didn’t comment or respond to James’ comments. However, according to league sources, James wants management to explore trade options to acquire Carmelo Anthony from the New York Knicks.

Now things get tricky as a lot of things would need to happen for this trade to go down.

1) The Cavs would most likely have to give up Tristan Thompson and Iman Shumpert (who they got from New York).

2) A third team would most likely have to join the trade.

3) Anthony would have to waive his no-trade clause.
