Carmelo Anthony's future is the hottest topic in NBA circles right now, especially around the Chicagoland area.

[ESPN's Broussard: Joakim Noah recruited Melo to join Bulls]

But could L.A. present a better case for Melo than the Bulls?

[MORE: Why Carmelo Anthony would need to give Bulls huge discount] Insider Aggrey Sam believes it might, as he referenced in his Thursday column:

Instead, in a move that would combine Anthony’s big-city leanings and the Knicks’ own needs, perhaps a more realistic proposal would involve the Clippers, who could look to make a power move if this postseason doesn’t result in the progress expected from Doc Rivers’ first year at the helm. All-Star point guard Chris Paul is a close friend of Anthony’s and could be the floor general he needs, and while young power forward Blake Griffin has made strides as a player this season, his best stretch came when Paul was out, putting the ball in his hands more as a playmaker, a role he’s not likely to be in during the playoffs.

Whether the Clippers trade Paul to the Knicks (somehow) or Melo winds up in L.A., CP3 and Melo would be quite the pairing. But then again, so would Rose and Melo.
