Bulls’ Zach Lavine Meets Privately with Jim Boylen

Amid the division within the Chicago Bulls organization between new head coach Jim Boylen, who took over recently for the fired Fred Hoiberg, and a number of players on the roster, has taken another turn.

According to ESPN’s Malika Andrews and Ramona Shelbourne, Bulls guard Zach LaVine spoke with Boylen one-on-one following the players boycotting of Sunday’s practice imposed by Boylen, which they felt was excessive.

“You just want to be real with people,” LaVine said, per the report. “There shouldn’t be any clouds. I think of myself as one of the leaders on the team. I just wanted to voice my opinion to them.”

“This is a business, this isn’t a dictatorship. We are all grown men, so everybody has a voice.”

Boylen has said that he has spoken with the team regarding the purpose of the practice on Sunday, but it is clear that the dysfunction runs deep in the organization.

Boylen has worked in a new offensive system, which has Dunn playing a different role to suit their new, traditional half court offense.

Dunn, has remained positive despite the changes.

“Nah. I think I got good listening skills,” Dunn said, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune. “I just listen to what coaches want me to do. I’m never one to disobey Coach’s rules.”

“There have been games where it worked. And there have been games where it’s on us to make shots. We’ve been getting good looks. We’ve been getting downhill from the offense. So it’s on us.”
