Sam Amick of USA Today is reporting that the Knicks view the Bulls as the biggest threat to sign Carmelo Anthony.
According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Knicks are confident about their standing in the sweepstakes and consider the Bulls the only real threat among the many suitors. A decision is expected from Anthony by Monday, though the ever-present fluidity of free agency means there is no definitive timeline. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the negotiations.
K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune hinted at the Bulls feeling pessimistic about their odds of landing the star forward.
