Chicago Bulls Vs. Dallas Mavericks: No Carmelo Anthony, Instead A Test

SB Nation Chicago's David Miller today wrote about new efforts by the Denver Nuggets to deal Carmelo Anthony to the Bulls after the deal that was going to send him to the New Jersey Nets fell through.

While Anthony would help the Bulls, are there enough basketballs for him and Derrick Rose? And would this cause another distraction? The Bulls were asked to give up Joakim Noah the first time around; Noah may be another few weeks away from returning, but I suspect the answer will be "no" again.

In the middle of all this, the Bulls face a Mavericks team that snapped a six-game losing streak by beating the Lakers at home last night. However, they have a four-game overall loss streak that the Bulls would love to extend. They'll have to do it without Carlos Boozer, who's still nursing the ankle he sprained on Saturday.

No local TV for this one -- it's on TNT only, at 7 p.m. CST.
