It’s well known that the Lakers are targeting the summer of 2014 and its vaunted free agent class to jump back into serious title contention. However, you can probably take one of the team’s likely top targets off of the board.

TMZ’s cameras caught up with Carmelo Anthony leaving a Hollywood spot earlier this week and flatly asked the Knicks forward if he sees himself wearing purple and gold in the future.

“I doubt it,” Anthony said, although he admitted he owns a pair of Air Jordans in Lakers colors. “… I don’t think you should read between the lines.”

TMZ’s typically disembodied voice also asked Anthony whether or not he’s talked to LeBron James and whether the two could be planning to join up on the same team when they’re both free agents next summer.

“I don’t have them conversations,” Anthony said.
