Sources stress that all three are determined to keep searching for their next NBA opportunity irrespective of any overseas interest. For Anthony, especially, it’s believed that playing in the NBA in his 20th season — right where James is longevity-wise — holds considerable meaning for the 38-year-old. Anthony averaged 13.3 points per game last season on 44.1% shooting from the field (37.5% on 3-pointers) for the Lakers.

John Wall on last couple seasons: 'I feel like I was on the edge of kinda getting pushed out myself'

According to Wall, the bitter truth is that much like other former stars, he too could no longer be in the NBA right now if the cards didn’t fall in his favor (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter): “I think it’s kind of frustrating for a lot of great veterans we have in this league because a lot of those guys are getting pushed out,” Wall said. “I feel like I was on the edge of kinda getting pushed out myself. If I wasn’t a true professional last year and the Clippers didn’t give me a chance, I don’t know if I’d probably been here right now. “We have so many great guys that can be like (Carmelo Anthony), Dwight [Howard], … even Kemba Walker. … You need veteran guys to help these young teams out as much as possible.”

Taiwanese teams targeting Isaiah Thomas, Enes Freedom

Keep an eye on Taiwan as an emerging option for NBA players looking to continue (or revive) their careers in Asia. Dwight Howard stunningly signed earlier this month for a reported seven figures with the Taoyuan Leopards and, with two relatively new leagues in Taiwan, other teams there will inevitably try to counter with their own marquee signings as an alternative for players who don’t want to play in China. Enes Freedom and Isaiah Thomas, I’m told, are targets for Taiwanese clubs. Ditto for 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony … though it’s widely presumed that Anthony, at 38, is holding out for another NBA opportunity after appearing in 69 games for the Lakers last season.
