Anthony, 37, has been linked to the Lakers over the course of the offseason.

The former scoring champ has been a serviceable pro on the Blazers for the last two seasons. He averaged 13.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season.

Furthermore, Anthony took a consistent role off the bench for the Blazers last season. He would likely do the same with the Lakers.

As for Gay, the 34-year-old has been a scoring punch for his entire career in the league. He’s played in over 1,000 games over the course of his NBA career.

The Spurs forward collected 11.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season.
