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.’’
