CHI can get Melo if put Noah in deal. Bulls not willing rt now.
More Broussard on twitter:
Neither NJ or Den been told Melo will re-sign w/NJ. Until then,
Melo-to-NJ all speculation. One exec told me Melo won't sign w/NJ.
I don't really believe the first line. Though, I guess it depends what goes in addition to Noah. Is it Noah + Gibson + Deng + Johnson + 2 1sts? I guess maybe that's believable, but that's also insanity on the Bulls part.
As for the second tweet regarding NJ, I think that's very believable. I'm quite interested to see what Melo thinks of NJ. In theory, Melo + Harris + Lopez is a pretty good core, and Morrow would make a really nice role player with those three as main pieces, but that team is really short on role players and Lopez/Harris probably are short on secondary star talent as well.
Of course, if you're looking at talent then why does NYK make any sense whatsoever? Amare + Felton + crap after the trade? It seems like it'd be a very weak grouping in the big apple. Now it's been known for a long time that Melo just likes New York and wants to play there, so maybe he's willing to overlook any hope of ever winning to sign there, but I don't think I'd want to go to New York.
If Melo wants to win, Chicago still has to be the most inviting destination, though that may change by the trade deadline.
