Carmelo Anthony might still be mulling his options, and the Bulls could very well be a part of his decision-making process.
According to a report from CBS Sports' Ken Burger on Thursday night, Anthony is still considering the Bulls, despite reports that he's already settled on returning to the New York Knicks.

Wednesday, a report out of New York indicated Anthony would re-signing with the Knicks after being sold on Phil Jackson's plan for the future of the franchise. But that report also said that Anthony would announce his decision Thursday, something that hasn't happened as of Thursday night.
If Anthony is still thinking about coming to Chicago, however, he hasn't let the Bulls know about it.

Interestingly, it still seems as if the Bulls have a contingency plan in case Anthony does decide on playing his home games at the United Center.
