Report: Carmelo To Bulls Talk ‘Overblown’


Is all the Carmelo Anthony to the Bulls talk a bit premature?

According to USA Today via a source with knowledge of the situation, the rumors of Melo to the Bulls is simply good conversation for now.

extent of the talks were overblown and even intimated that Anthony’s camp may have made a point to share their chat with the world as a way to remind the Knicks he is considering leaving that extra contract year and about $30 million behind by leaving New York this July. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks.

That’s not to discount the possibility of Anthony landing with the Bulls, though they don’t have the necessary salary cap space to sign Anthony and would need to make a number of moves to make this happen. No, it’s only to point out that player politics will be part of this puzzle from here until July and much of what will transpire will need to be interpreted.
