Knicks' impending free agent Carmelo Anthony struggled to find team success in New York, but could have an opportunity presented to him in South Beach.

ESPN is reporting that LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat -- also known as "the big three" -- have already begun to "explore their options for creating sufficient financial flexibility to make an ambitious run" at Anthony in the offseason. 

Opt-out clauses for all three stars makes adding another scorer a viable option, simply because they can each sign new deals at cut rates.

And James, the team's highest earner, also just netted a $30 million profit when Beats By Dre sold to Apple; a company which he had a small stake in. 

This potential move could turn one of the NBA's fiercest trios into a dynamic foursome. 

Anthony, 30, averaged 27.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game for the Knicks this season.
