The Chicago Bulls are reportedly a more likely destination than the LA Lakers for Carmelo Anthony in free agency this offseason should he leave New York. Melo has been reported to have Lakers, Clippers and Bulls on his “short list” of possible destinations.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Within the past several weeks, a longtime confidant of Carmelo Anthony confesses, something changed. Never did he believe there was a chance Anthony would leave the New York Knicks – never the Madison Square Garden stage, never the $129 million contract extension.
Only now, the gloom of the Knicks’ season – the uncertainty of the franchise’s future – left that man to believe it’s possible Anthony could leave New York in free agency.
“Chicago is much more in play for him than L.A.,” the source said.
