Central Rumors: Melo, Bulls, Irving, Sessions

Carmelo Anthony says that he values winning over money and if he’s a man of his word, then the Bulls make perfect sense for him, writes Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.  Here’s more on Melo and Chicago, plus other notes out of the Central Division..

  • Melo met with the Bulls earlier today and a source tells Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders (on Twitter) that he followed that up with a dinner alongside Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, and others.  Rose had to leave the dinner early, but coach Tom Thibodeau also stopped by (link).  The dinner pitch is going “great,” according to the source who is in attendance (link).  Prior to dinner, Rose took to the floor at Chicago’s practice facility and went through a private workout to show Anthony that he’s healthy, Kennedy writes.
  • The Cavs sealed the deal with Kyrie Irving on a five-year, $90MM extension with an overnight meeting, but there was much more that went into wooing the guard.  Terry Pluto of The Plain Dealer runs it all down.
  • A bunch of teams are showing interest in Ramon Sessions, including the Bulls, tweets Gery Woelfel of the Journal Times.
  • A league source tells Candace Buckner of The Star (on Twitter) that the Pacers plan to dine with C.J. Miles tonight.

    anybody else laughing ridiculously hard at the Melo-Bulls dinner thing and how sources are there for some reason, and reporting all of these weird details? This seems more like a hollywood story than a sports story

      I’m mostly finding your picture ridiculously funny. I’m curious, when LeBron said not 2, not 3, not 4, was it to the number of teams he would take his talents to or the number of Miami fans that would jump ship when he did?

        It’s funny how Heat fans disappeared when they were getting destroyed in the playoffs and disappeared even more after James opted out thinking he was good as gone. Now that everyone knows he is almost 100% going to be with the Heat again next year, they are crawling out of the sewer drains they coward in!
