Carmelo Anthony wants to play for a winner, but desperately wants to play in a big market because of his business ventures — his Jordan Brand sneaker line, his PowerCoco energy drink, his watch deal.
That is why New York, Los Angeles, where he has a home, and even Chicago are on his short list, according to a source.
While we’ve known about the potential interest in both the Clippers and Lakers, the intrigue with the Chicago Bulls is relatively new.
Interest or not, the Bulls would need to get creative financially to sign Melo considering they have $63 million guaranteed on the books for the 2014-15. The same goes for the Clippers, who simply don’t have the available funds to sign Anthony outright.
