The Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes continue on as the Chicago Bulls remain a strong possibility for the disgruntled star.
But with the team opening the season strong without power forward Carlos Boozer, should the Bulls still pursue a trade for Melo?
Chicago Bulls analyst Sam Smith of Bulls.com thinks so.
Smith, a nationally recognized NBA columnist, said Chicago would be Anthony's top destination if he wants to win. The reason being the New York Knicks and New Jersey Nets don't have strong supporting casts after trading for him.
The Bulls, meanwhile, have three other potential All-Stars in Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Boozer.
Smith proposes trading Luol Deng and a No. 1 pick to the Toronto Raptors or Cleveland Cavaliers while moving Taj Gibson, Omer Asik and two or three No. 1 picks to the Denver Nuggets.
Some see this as a championship move because Anthony is one of the NBA's top ten players while others would cringe in limiting the Bulls' roster depth.
Would a trade like this be worth it? Or is it simply too much?
