(CBS) Asked Friday about a report that he’d recruited Knicks star and Carmelo Anthony to Chicago during All-Star weekend, Bulls center Joakim Noah responded by saying he wasn’t into addressing “gossip,” according to the Chicago Tribune.

“I feel a lot of gossip,” Noah said, according to the Tribune. “I think we all know that we’re in a good place. Our team is in a good place. We’ve got a healthy group, it’s a healthy environment, and we’re not going to let gossip get in the way of what we’re doing. We’ve gone through so much this year, so it’s not going to be a little gossip that gets out there.’’

Noah added it “doesn’t matter” if the report is true, the Tribune reported.

Coach Tom Thibodeau called the speculation “nonsense.”
