Trade rumors continue to circulate around the Bulls, but on Monday coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed what a source told the Sun-Times two weeks ago – the organization is taking calls, just not making many of them.
“Normally this time of year you hear a lot of stuff anyway, and that’s what their job is – to see what’s going on in the league,’’ Thibodeau said of the conversations he’s had with general manager Gar Forman and VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson. “They field calls all the time, and if a player is a good player you’re going to get more calls about him. That’s all part of it.
“They’re not actively seeking to move anybody, but they’re always looking to see if we can improve our club, and if something makes sense they’ll consider it. That’s what they do.’’
