Chicago Bulls' Plan B Options If Carmelo Anthony or Kevin Love Aren't Acquired
USA TODAY Sports

It's no secret that the Chicago Bulls would like to add an offensive star to their roster this offseason.

Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love are the two biggest names that could be available—Anthony via free agency, should he choose to opt out of the final year of his deal, and Love through trade.

Nick Friedell of ESPNChicago.com confirms the team's interest in both, listing Anthony as its top target.

If either were teamed up with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, Chicago would instantly become a top-three team in the Eastern Conference—if not the best overall.

Unfortunately, superstars like Love and Anthony aren't easy to come by, especially via trade. Chicago would have to move some serious money around in order to sign Anthony, and the team would also have to give up quite a bit in a package for Love.

While the Bulls should certainly try their best to acquire either star, falling short wouldn't make their offseason a failure, either.

Plenty of options remain on the free-agent market and trade block. If Chicago swings and misses on Anthony and Love, these five players would be nice consolation prizes to help bring some offense to the Windy City.
