So the rumors are that Melo wants to play for the Bulls. The Bulls do not have the cap space to sign Melo, unless he is willing, which I doubt, to come to Chicago at an extreme discount. Who here, besides me, is ready to throw in the towel on the Rose experiment? Two non-contact knee ligament tears and two wasted years of being good, but not good enough to really do anything serious in the playoffs has left me very weary. The Knicks are shit, and not getting any less shittier any time soon. Do you think they'd bite on a package of Rose (to fill the stands if healthy), Jimmy, and first round picks for Melo? Melo is most def bolting New York and rather than losing him for nothing it seems like the Knicks would consider taking on the liability that is Rose and his fragile physique, especially if we sweetened the deal with a ton of draft picks (which they desperately need). If we traded Rose and amnestied Boozer, we'd have the money to not only give Melo a respectable contract (which might not have to be the max if all we hear about him desperately wanting a ring is true), sign Lance Stephenson, AND bring over Mirotic, which would make us legitimate championship contenders.
