Stephen A. Smith and Mike McGraw are reporting that Carmelo Anthony is having second thoughts about re-signing with the New York Knicks, with the Chicago Bulls resurfacing as an option.

Anthony has regained interest in the Bulls and Tom Thibodeau is reportedly keeping him interested.

The Bulls are internally trying to figure out how to close a deal with Anthony.

There have been no sign-and-trade talks with the New York Knicks, as the Bulls would need a commitment from Anthony before engaging.

A source told K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune that the Bulls continued efforts to find a third team to make potential sign-and-trade possibilities work.

The Bulls can offer Anthony a four-year, $73 million deal without parting with Taj Gibson, but expressed that they could make the finances work if he were to pick them. 

Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that the Los Angeles Lakers also remain under consideration.
