Jalen Rose disagrees with his "Fab Five brother" Chris Webber and believes Carmelo Anthony would be a great fit with the Chicago Bulls.

"I think he would fit right in with that team," Rose, an ESPN analyst, said Tuesday on "The Carmen & Jurko Show" on ESPN Chicago 1000. "I think if you're able to make that a Big Three, now Miami is looking to Chicago and saying, 'Wow we've got some real competition' in an overall weak Eastern Conference this year."

Webber told "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" on ESPN Radio last week that he believes Anthony should go to a team with an offensive coach rather than one fronted by a defensive mind like the Bulls' Tom Thibodeau.

Rose said if he were Anthony he would want the Bulls to execute a sign and trade deal to acquire him rather than a straight signing. The Knicks are the only team that can offer Anthony a five-year, $129 million contract. The Bulls, or any other team, can offer Anthony only a maximum four-year, $96 million contract.

"In order for me to leave that kind of money on the table they better have Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Phil Jackson coaching with Pop and Red Auerbach as assistants," Rose said.
