Anthony has a player option for this summer he has said he intends to exercise, making him an unrestricted free agent.
According to several sources, including a teammate, Noah's All-Star Weekend “conversation'' with New York Knicks standout Carmelo Anthony didn't end in New Orleans.
They had discussions via text the rest of the season, including the day after the Bulls were eliminated in the playoffs by the Washington Wizards.
“ ‘Well, get your boy to come to Chicago.' '' Sources said Noah has been in Anthony's ear as often as possible, and he has told other Bulls to push hard for Anthony this summer.
