Bulls no longer seen as a Melo destination

The Knicks look content with Melo now that Porzingis has emerged, and the Bulls likely don't have the parts anyway

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

Zach Lowe went deep on the Knicks this week, and how while #PORZINGIS once meant a total rebuild, he's been so useful right away that they can stay competitive and keep Melo.

Not to mention, finding a trade partner for the $23m (and nearly 3 additional years remaining) on Anthony's massive contract is tough.  The Bulls are brought up as a possibility, but not much of one.

Ah, Anthony's would-be home. There is just too much health-related uncertainty surrounding Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose to build a deal that works under the league's salary-matching rules.

Nobody's really presented as 'likely', though the Rockets and Lakers are deemed more plausible.
