Chicago Bulls make hard pitch to Carmelo Anthony
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bulls are making the hard sell for Carmelo Anthony.
The Knicks superstar free agent arrived at a decked-out United Center on Tuesday in a limobus with coach Tom Thibodeau and two other people, a police SUV trailing them.
He walked past the Michael Jordan statue, waving to a small group of cheering fans as he went inside.
The Bulls believe they have a strong pitch: Anthony can team with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah and put them in position to win an NBA title. But Anthony is a top target in NBA free agency and he is expected to visit other teams.
