Free agent forward Carmelo Anthony has narrowed his options to three teams, according to the New York Daily News.

Anthony is "torn" between playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls or the New York Knicks.

The 30-year-old is debating the pros and cons of each team and could make a decision any day.

The Bulls would have to work a sign-and-trade with the Knicks for Anthony to receive a "max" contract. The Lakers offer Anthony a chance to play alongside Kobe Bryant as well as a max contract. The Knicks can offer Anthony more money than either the Bulls or the Lakers.

For Anthony, the decision comes down to what is most important: winning now (the Bulls) vs. being paid the most money (the Knicks) or getting the most money outside of New York and playing with Bryant (the Lakers).

NBA insiders said the idea of Anthony joining Bryant and the Lakers gained momentum over the weekend.
