Not all is gloomy in the Windy City.

The Bulls are still believed to be one of the finalists to land Carmelo Anthony, who is reportedly deciding between Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. 

Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that Bulls brass believe they’ll land Pau Gasol if they miss out on Anthony.

According to a source, the Bulls feel that if Anthony goes elsewhere, they are one of the leading candidates to land free-agent big man Pau Gasol — unless Anthony happens to choose the Los Angeles Lakers, which could start the dominos falling and convince Gasol to re-sign with the Lakers. …

Besides the Bulls, Gasol was being targeted by the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Miami Heat, the Lakers, the San Antonio Spurs and the New York Knicks. The Thunder and the Bulls were the teams that impressed Gasol the most, at least until Tuesday, when reports from a Monday meeting between Gasol and Thunder coach Scott Brooks resulted in the Thunder believing the money wouldn’t work. …

In joining the Bulls, Gasol would be walking in as a starter on a playoff-caliber team that plays an unselfish style he likes. He has expressed his desire to start wherever he goes.
