Bulls’ Fred Hoiberg Upset with Team’s Defense, Everything Else

Published

Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg wasn’t too pleased with how his team played when they took the court to play the Milwaukee Bucks during preseason action.

“I was upset with everything,” Fred Hoiberg said, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic.

“We weren’t getting back. We let our lack of shot-making affect our overall game as far as edge and effort. Our transition defense was not good, and we weren’t getting matched up coming back.”

“Luckily, it’s just preseason. It doesn’t count on our record,” Bulls forward Bobby Portis said. “But I think that moving forward we can use this as a lesson learned for the regular season and not have nights like this anymore.”

Chicago Bulls head coach Jim Boylen liked to see his players fighting for one another during Tuesday’s skirmish with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“That’s all we’ve been talking about is fighting for each other,” Boylen said, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “We talk about being a pack of wolves, man. I thought we had some of that. I liked the look in our guys’ eyes when that happened. It bonded them a little bit.”

The melee hit a fever pitch when Bulls center Robin Lopez got into a heated physical exchange with Thunder forward Jerami Grant, which bled into the stands.

Chicago lost the game in blowout fashion.

Chicago Bulls forward Jabari Parker is currently on the trade block and the Utah Jazz are apparently interested in the veteran, who has had a disappointing short stint playing for his hometown Bulls.

According to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor, the Jazz have not found success with pairing current forward Derrick Favors next to center Rudy Gobert, and with Favors’ $16.9 million left on his contract being non-guaranteed, the Jazz view Parker as a potential replacement for Favors.

Favors can’t be traded until January 15th, so a trade would have to wait a bit, but Utah is certainly interested in turning the page on Favors’ run in Utah.

Bulls Pulling Jabari Parker from Regular Rotation

It appears that the Chicago Bulls are souring on Jabari Parker, who will reportedly be pulled from the regular rotation, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

The 23-year old Parker came to Chicago via a two-year, $40 million deal during the offseason, and marked a return to his hometown and a chance to re-ignite his career.

Now, it appears certain that the Bulls will decline his option, sending Parker back to free agency next summer.

“Jabari has been great,” Bulls head coach Jim Boylen said, according to Andrews. “He understands. Jabari wants to make it about helping the team win. And that’s what I’ve asked him to do.”

Parker has averaged 15.8 points and 7.1 rebounds for Chicago this season.
