Bulls Rumors: Should Bulls focus on Melo, not LeBron in free agency?

In today's look into Bulls rumors surrounding the impending NBA free agency period, one ESPN writer argues that the Chicago Bulls should keep their eyes set on New York Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony rather than chasing LeBron James on the open market.

According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, "James, who will opt out of the final two years of his contract with the Miami Heat and become a free agent, is undoubtedly the better all-around player. He is a four-time MVP and two-time NBA champion coming off his fourth straight appearance in the NBA Finals. But it's Anthony who figures to be more attainable for the Bulls, and the interest appears mutual."

James has already passed once on the possibility of playing with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, argues Friedell - positing that he might do the same thing again in light of Rose's two major knee surgeries.

Therefore, Friedell believes that it stands in the Bulls' best interest to continue their pursuit of Anthony and let James come to them if he decides the Windy City intrigues him.
