article about teams looking at Melo after this year.

 

 

Charlotte Bobcats

Charlotte’s signing of Al Jefferson was a statement of purpose, and in time, his performance as an offensive anchor could help inch the Bobcats toward respectability. Yet for the moment, this roster is too lacking — and its recent misery too fresh — to market itself as an appealing landing spot for Anthony. That won’t likely the deter Charlotte from at least exploring the possibility; the Bobcats would need to clear a bit more cap room (possibly by trading either Gerald Henderson or Bismack Biyombo) to make Melo a true max offer, but salary-wise Charlotte is flexible enough to entertain the option.

MANNIX: Team-by-team previews for 2013-14 season

On basketball terms, Anthony would be a miserable fit with Jefferson and, at 30, would be far older than the bulk of the Bobcats’ core. But a star like Anthony has to entice a franchise that has thus far gone without much individual player appeal. The best in Bobcats franchise history — Gerald Wallace and Emeka Okafor — were purveyors of grind, not glamour. To sign Anthony would help to shift that precedent, though at the cost of various on-court concerns. This is all a moot point considering that Anthony is incredibly unlikely to leave New York for Charlotte, the Knicks for the then-Hornets, and a steady playoff team for a postseason hopeful. But with the Bobcats aiming a bit higher and willing to spend to get there, a possible pursuit of Anthony is on the table — even if that interest isn’t reciprocated.

Not a fan of Melo. I think we'd only be a top 3 team in the East with an addition of Melo. I wanna win a Championship, not be above average. Sure as hell would sell tickets though.
