Re: Are the Bulls even trying to trade for Carmelo?
I think the Bulls are actively speaking to as many teams as they can around the league as the trade deadline approaches. They've already been one of the mote active teams this season with the Deng and Teague trades.
We'll see. Nothing would surprise me, but I don't see a big move being completed if any.
I think the Knicks will try their best to re-sign Melo and won't trade him even if they feel he may walk. I think they'll want to give it their best shot at keeping him this offseason and won't be willing to trade him now.
With that said the Bulls probably could make a very appealing offer and I would be open to it, but the Knicks would have to accept and we'd have to get some confirmation from Melo that he would resign.
