We first pointed out a few days ago that the Bulls were unwilling to include Joakim Noah in any trade for Denver Nuggets superstar Carmelo Anthony. And though details of reported trade discussions for Anthony change regularly, the fact that Noah is unavailable remains constant. From Ken Berger of CBS Sports:
The Bulls are viewed by one source as “not a realistic candidate” due to the team’s unwillingness at this point to include Joakim Noah in the deal. The Bulls and Noah are currently negotiating an extension.
Noah will be a Bull for the long haul, it appears, and because of that, Anthony won’t become one, at least not yet.
