Re: Are the Bulls even trying to trade for Carmelo?
Yeah I would give up both Taj and Butler to get Melo. You're right, Melo, Noah and Rose is still a good "big 3" to build around. Plus Mirotic is supposed to be awesome. That's 3 all-stars (Melo, Noah and Rose) plus someone who will probably turn into an all-star (Mirotic). Fill up the roster with good role players. Who's a decent 2 guard the Bulls could go after? I'd even take Ben Gordon back if he was available.
Knicks would be stupid to pass on an offer of Taj Gibson & Jimmy Butler and a draft pick for Carmelo Anthony.
