Bulls Having Jabari Parker Trade Talks

The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen's rotation Thursday. Parker appears to have already fallen out of the Bulls' regular rotation after playing just four minutes during Thursday's 97-91 loss to the Orlando Magic. In addition, Boylen said that Parker's limited minutes were a "matchup thing".

But following Sunday's events in which a group text exchange circulated with two or three players originally suggesting a boycott of Boylen's practice following a back-to-back and an intense week, Boylen went to players with the idea. It's hard to do that. "We have a lot of games left, and we're going to need all of our people".

Parker's numbers of 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds are solid, but the Bulls seem to think he doesn't make much of a difference when it comes to winning and losing. The team has gotten healthier in the frontcourt with second-year forward Lauri Markkanen returning to the team last week after being sidelined with an elbow injury. He's shooting 45.5 percent overall and 29.3 percent on 3-pointers. Chicago's next game is on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs (8:30 p.m. ET - watch on fuboTV with the NBA League Pass extension).

Simply put, the Jabari Parker experiment with the Chicago Bulls didn't work.

"Going forward, he's part of our team, and it's not about the individual, it's about the team".

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.

Rudy Gay is suddenly playing like the guy we saw back in Memphis, taking advantage of bigger players at the power forward position to drive to the basket or get off his deadly baseline jumper.
