Carmelo Anthony To The Bulls….What would you give up?

carmelo anthony 9 10 Carmelo Anthony To The Bulls….What would you give up?

There are all kinds of rumors circulating that Carmelo Anthony might soon be available in a trade. Anthony has let it be known that the Bulls would be at the top of his wish list so further rumors are going around on what the Bulls would be willing to trade to get him. One UNCONFIRMED report has the Bulls talking internally about including Joakim Noah in any deal but I’m here to tell you why it shouldn’t and wont happen.

I don’t get why this is so hard to understand. There is NO QUESTION that Carmelo Anthony is a TOP PLAYER in this league and the Bulls would love to have a guy who has the balls to take last second shots (and hit them) but they would TRY and add him to what their strengths already are. They are (once again) trying to build around defense. Noah is (pun intended) front and center of that defense and his offense has improved to at least make him decent in that area. If you add Anthony but give up a focal strong part of your team you are not getting that much better…if at all. And for those who think you can trot out a front line of Carlos Boozer, Taj Gibson and Anthony…you can if you want but you wont win anything. Denver is going to get desperate to trade this guy after he tells them next week he will not re-sign with them. Of course the Nuggets will ask for key components from other teams but they can ask all they want. Give them Luol  Deng, give them Gibson, and maybe either James Johnson or future picks but you don’t give them what you are banking on to make you good for not only this year but the next 5-8 years down the road. If you can make a deal with them to have Boozer, Noah and Anthony in your front court then bring on Miami but if you don’t have the center piece (pun intended again)….it’s not worth it and Bulls management will look at it that way.

    Ahh….. u can’t trade a free agent for 6 months after u aquired him, in case u didn’t know. But i agree with u totally, u don’t trade a big for a small, no matter how many points he scores!!

  • bullman47

    And why would u trade Boozer anyway? That defeats the whole purpose of what you are trying to do. And i don’t think coach Tom Thibs would allow that. he is a DEFENSIVE COACH, so why would he take a guy who can’t guard his shadow, for a few xtra points, doesn’t make the bulls better at all!

    Bullman…..I never said trade Boozer. I know you can’t and it would be BEYOND stupid..even if you could.

  • JOCK231

    I think a package of Gibson, Deng, Johnson, and three number one draft picks for the next three years would be the best deal Denver would get for Anthony.

  • Mike Jackson

    No Rose, Boozer & Noah. Let’s talk! Anthony can score every where on the floor. Mainly in the post. Anthony takes too many jumper. Anthony can play “D” Coach K got it out of him. Anthony can play 2,3,&4. Anthony is one of the top 5 players in the world. Make the deal Pax!!!

  • Luke S

    it may be too good to pass up, if u get melo, see what else you can get from the nuggets or other teams. i thought it was stupid for the bulls to trade Noah for bosh, but for anthony, id take that in a heart beat
