Earlier this week, ESPN's Malika Andrew reported that the Bulls were planning to remove Parker from the rotation and now it appears the Bulls may look to go in a different direction altogether. An opportunity for the former number two overall draft pick to reinvigorate his career in the Windy City.
Per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have been talking with several teams about a potential Jabari Parker trade. Boylen ruled out playing Parker at power forward. The task of trading Parker will be complicated by his large salary that's not commesurate with his play, as teams will need to return hefty matching salary. "We'll see what his minutes are going forward".
The animosity among the Bulls players and their coach reached fever-pitch last week with the players getting in contact with the NBA Players' Association to voice concerns over Boylen's methods.
So far this season, Parker is averaging 15.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
According to Andrews' report, the Bulls are incredibly yet to take a day off in Boylen's 10 days in charge. He also said that the league will play in Mexico "for many years to come", although there is no official agreement beyond this season. Even though Popovich insists the 3-point shot has ruined the game of basketball, he still features that weapon as a big part of his offense.
