Noah is trying his hardest to get Carmelo to Chicago because he knows that the Bulls need help and Melo could be the missing piece.
Derrick Rose on the other hand says it isn’t his job to recruit players to the Bulls. Noah is trying to convince him to at least meet with Melo according to Basketball Insiders.
Sources close to the situation say that Joakim Noah has been communicating with Anthony in recent weeks. The two have been texting back and forth, and Noah is actively recruiting Anthony to Chicago.
The Bulls are the first team that Anthony will meet with when free agency begins on July 1. He will fly to Chicago to hear the Bulls’ pitch. Sources say that Noah will either be present at the free agency meeting, or will meet with Anthony after the conclusion of the meeting. Noah wants to bring Rose along with him as well, and is trying to persuade the point guard to attend the meeting.
If Rose wants to win, it wouldn’t hurt him to at least speak with Melo. It isn’t like Rose can carry the Bulls on his own, he isn’t capable of that and Carmelo can help the team.
His job is to be a leader, so he should start acting like one.
