Boeheim: Melo, Bulls Would be Good Match

Jim Boeheim is not advocating Carmelo Anthony leave the Knicks for the Bulls. But if it did happen, the Syracuse coaching legend believes Anthony and Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau would be a very good match.

Boeheim and Thibodeau were together last summer in Las Vegas during Team USA’s training camp as assistant coaches for Mike Krzyzewski. Even then, Thibodeau picked Boeheim’s brain on Anthony. They remain in touch as Team USA gears up for the World Championships this summer.

“I’ve talked to Tom about Melo, his name has come up,’’ Boeheim told The Post. “I think Tom is very excited about the possibility of getting Carmelo. He likes him. He likes how he plays. He feels he’s coachable. I think Tom Thibodeau is one of the better coaches in the NBA. Carmelo would be happy playing for him. It would be a good fit — the coach-player relationship.’’

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
