Carmelo Anthony’s Wish List: Bulls, Knicks?

Yahoo! reports that Melo wants to play in either New York or Chicago next season: “Carmelo Anthony still hopes to persuade the Denver Nuggets to trade him, preferably to either the Chicago Bulls or New York Knicks, an NBA source with knowledge of Anthony’s wishes told Yahoo! Sports. The Knicks have limited assets to offer the Nuggets, which makes the Bulls a more appealing potential trade partner. The Bulls can offer a replacement small forward in Luol Deng, as well as two young forwards in James Johnson and Taj Gibson. New York officials would like to make a run at signing Anthony next summer if he were to opt to become a free agent. The Knicks will have salary-cap room with Eddy Curry’s contract expiring after the season. While Anthony would prefer a trade to either the Bulls or Knicks, he knows the Nuggets could decide to send him elsewhere.”

    COME TO THE CHI!

  • RockManX

    YES MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!! Melo to the BULLS NOW!!

  • WangChung

    what happened to all the Houston trade talk? say it ain’t so, Melo!

  • Groves

    stay in the mile high

  • Young C

    If he goes to the Bulls, its over. Look at the lineup…
    Pg- Rose
    Sg- Brewer
    Sf- Melo
    Pf- Boozer
    C- Noah

    Nobodys gonna beat them except maybe the lakers with their depth, but they would be the favorites coming out of the East for me, and yes that includes that Miami team.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    Lual Deng and his 50 million dollar contract are an “asset,” only in yahoo fantasy land.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    *Luol

  • bhs

    @Young C that is gonna be the real beast of the east, miami wont have anything on that team

    IF this happens who’s the leader on that team between Rose and Anthony maybe thats why didn’t get neither dwyane or lebron because maybe he wants to lead this team and make his own legacy. IMO rose will have a say in this if it happens.

    *maybe thats why they didn’t

    Rumors…START THE SEASON ALREADY!

  • T-Money

    Um, call me crazy but I’d rather have Wade, Bosh, Bron than D-Rose, Melo, Boozer. Although it would be an unbelievable team, I don’t think they’d kill MIA. Anyways, I was told that CP3 was getting traded for sure too so I’ll wait.

  • Nashty

    I rather see Melo in a Knicks uni.

  • downtown_brownclown

    The Knicks would be a better choice… atleast he’d be the clear leader of the knicks… and c’mon, he’d flourish in d’antoni’s system… but i hope when he goes to the knicks, he’ll still try to improve on his defense. because that’ll make him more dangerous… :D

  • Robb

    If he goes to the Bulls, the Heat is in trouble. Yes they’d kill Miami, and the reason is because they’d get more rebounds and play tougher defense, and by adding Melo as an offensive threat, man that’s tough . The Noah factor would be key also.

  • Red

    Knicks are garbage even with Amar’e. D’Antoni’s system? What has that done for anyone? If he’s gonna ‘flourish’ it’ll be off of his own offense. D’Antoni is a medicore monkey.

    Bulls would demolish over & over, Post Michael Era Will become Rose,Noah,Melo Era :)

  • JTaylor21

    There’s no way that the nuggs are taking sorry a** deng and his monstrous contract. They are gonna want to include Noah in the deal.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Apparently they would have to give up Noah to get Melo. Still sound good?

  • CARTEL

    He’d be better off just playing his final season with Denver and then CHOOSING where he wants to play, because I don’t see Denver trading him wherever he wants to go, just because it benefits him…

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    Yeah even if they give up Noah I love this move for the Bulls…. Anthony, Rose, Boozer will win the East BOOK IT! I really hope this happens before the season ends

  • KING

    How will the bulls beat miami?
    All they would have is offense…rose don’t have d melo don’t have d boozer don’t have d. Brewer and noah r da only bulls with some defensive ability…steals don’t really count as being a real good defender

  • JTaylor21

    @Pardeep there’s no way in hell that Rose/Ant/Booz are better or beating Wade/Bosh/Bron. NO F*CKING WAY. Those three don’t and can’t play an ounce of D while Wade/Bron are great defenders with bosh being a good defender, remember that defense wins chips.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    As great as Melo is, no Noah = no Carmelo. As stupid as that may sounds to you non-Bulls fans, and even some Bulls fan, I wouldn’t part with Noah, even for Carmelo. Oh, and I cannot believe I’m agreeing with JTaylor on anything, but LeBron/Bosh/Wade > Rose/Boozer/Melo by far. In ten years Rose will be the best of them all though…. only cause the others will be 35+ years old, lol.

  • Red

    Rose/Melo/Noah would demolish Miami’s big 3.

    They better hope Melo goes to the Knicks. :)

    Our D will kill Miami, thank Coach Thibs for that.
