Bulls News: Bulls "feeling optimistic" about landing Carmelo Anthony

In Bulls news today, one noted ESPN NBA analyst believes that the Chicago Bulls are feeling good about their chances to land New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony in free agency this summer.

ESPN's Marc Stein tweeted this out on Saturday:

If the Chicago Bulls are to land Carmelo Anthony, Anthony will have to leave almost $30 million on the table -- opting for a four-year max contract with the Bulls, rather than a five-year deal with the Knicks.

However, with the possibility of a healthy Derrick Rose (and the possibility of using their amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer for space), the Bulls could present an attractive environment for Anthony from a contending perspective.

This is all speculation at the current moment, with the Los Angeles Lakers also rumored as a possible landing spot for Anthony if he decides not to remain with the Knicks.
