Carmelo Anthony or Kevin Love: Who Makes Better Sense for Chicago Bulls to Chase

The Chicago Bulls are expected to have a big offseason this summer. Their two preferred options would appear to be Carmelo Anthony or Kevin Love, which raises the question: Which of the two would be the best fit?

The Bulls have the Nos. 16 and 19 picks in this draft. They have the protected Sacramento Kings’ pick next year. They also have the rights to Nikola Mirotic, the best prospect in Europe, and they have high-value contracts in Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Mike Dunleavy Jr.

They can include Carlos Boozer, who will be in the final year of his contract, for the sole purpose of making the money work.

Not that they’d have to, but if they threw all that at the Minnesota Timberwolves for Love or at the New York Knicks for Anthony, they would win a bidding war against anyone.

If that fails, they can always amnesty Boozer (as many expect they will), trade Dunleavy and/or Gibson and create enough cap space to sign Anthony outright.

Here are the advantages each has over the other in no particular order. They aren’t ranked because the entire thing is too dynamic to do so.
