ESPN’s Darren Rovell has a good post-game piece titled “I Don’t Know What’s Next for the Bulls.”
Rovell starts off by telling the story of how he and his family were invited to a Bulls-Heat game on a Saturday night and was turned away.
He was given a ticket to a Nets game but not one to the Bulls-Bucks game.
After a brief discussion about the season and the Bulls, Rovell says the team finally offered him a ticket.
But he still hasn’t been able to attend the Bulls game.
I know this because I was sitting next to the other guy, and I looked at him and I said, “You’re not going to be able to go to the next game,” Rovell writes.
“I don’t know what’s next for the Chicago Bulls, but I know what I can’t get my hands on.”
I’ve had a couple of conversations with Bulls GM Gar Forman this week, and the main thing I’ve heard him say is that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
He doesn’t want to be the face of a franchise that has had two bad seasons.
He thinks that if he can help the team make a move, then he will do it.
But as Rovell notes, he also believes that the Bulls are going to lose at least one more game this season, which would make a return to Chicago a little less likely.
In terms of the playoff race, the Bulls will be without All-Star Jimmy Butler and two-time All-NBA forward Joakim Noah.
There are also the rumors that the front office will consider trading Derrick Rose, and that Rose will be traded to help the Bulls get back into the playoffs.
