LeBron James is considering a move to the Knicks when he opts out of his contract at the end of next season, according to a report.

ESPN's Stephen A Smith made the revelation about James' possible move to New York on his radio show, and the news was tweeted via Tommy Beer of Hoopsworld on July 30.

"Stephen A Smith, on ESPN radio, says Lebron has "let wor[d] seep out" that he will "strongly consider" signing w/ ‪#Knicks as a FA in 2 years," the tweet read.

The announcement came a day after Hoopsworld reported that Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony was told by his team that he would have unlimited influence in building New York's roster in 2015.

The Knicks informed Anthony that they will have tons of salary cap room in 2015 and that the 29-year-old can pick his teammates, according to the report. With support from the New York fan base, and the Knicks opulent budget, Anthony will have many options in 2015. There will be several attractive offers from teams for Anthony's services, but with seemingly limitless influence in New York, the opposition will be hard-pressed to draw him away from the bright lights of Madison Square Garden.

Anthony has a long list of athletes to choose from. Along with James, NBA players such as Tony Parker, Rajon Rondo Andrew Bynum, Marc Gasol, DeAndre Jordan, LaMarcus Aldridge and Zach Randolph will all be unrestricted free agents, and many more stars could be on the market as restricted free agents.

In a video posted on TMZ on July 24, Anthony responded favorably to a question about whether he could be successful playing alongside James.

"We just won two gold medals," Anthony said of his experience with James on the U.S. Olympic team.
