NBA Trade Rumors: Is Chicago Bulls preparing to trade Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson, latest updates
When we are going to finally have a definite picture as far as NBA trade is concerned? There is no gainsaying the fact that the rumors wouldnâ€™t end before the trade issue is finally settled in the third week of February.
Those teams seem to be in greater focus regarding trade that are not doing well. Chicago Bulls are one such team that hasnâ€™t been able to do well this season.
There is no denying the fact that the team hasnâ€™t started the season that well as they are 15-11 at the moment.
Though they are among the best when it comes to their defense, the same cannot be said about their offense. Latest reports suggest that their defense is ranked second in the NBA and many attribute it to their head coach Fred Hoiberg. With a deadlock in their frontcourt, many people around the league guessed over the summer that Chicago would eventually trade one of their big men. And now, with the team losing three straight games and having a number of problems, the front office is considering potential trades.
While talking about it Yahoo Sportsâ€™ Adrian Wojnarowski saysthat Chicago is “determined” to trade Joakim Noah or Taj Gibson for a quality wing player – particularly a good shooter as the team tries to turn into “more of an offensive-minded group.â€
But this is not all. Other than the trade rumors doing the rounds about the Chicago Bulls team, there has been drama as well. Jimmy Butler recently made news when he called out Coach Hoiberg for not being hard enough on players. After those remarks were made, Bulls players were divided on whether it was right for Butler to disclose his opinion publicly. On the other hand, some top of the line Bulls players are not really very happy with Butler’s recent attempts to be the Bulls’ leader. There have been several reports about Butler and Rose not getting along, but both players have tried to defy those rumors.
