Joakim Noah has begun to tell his Chicago Bulls’ teammates he plans on signing elsewhere in free agency.
Noah allegedly said he “has no trust in the front office getting this in the right direction.’’
There appears to be a complete mistrust multiple players have towards Gar Forman.
Tom Thibodeau was always able to shield the players from the front office, having them buy into the idea that it was “us against them.’’ The wall became blurry when the Bulls hired Fred Hoiberg.
Noah had a difficult season that included injury.
“[Noah] represents a lot of things that we believe in,’’ VP of basketball operations John Paxson said in mid-April about re-signing Noah. “So we have an affinity for Jo. But we’ve got to talk, we’ve got to see where it goes.’’
