The longest-tenured member of the Chicago Bulls may be leaving the organization this summer.
Now an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career, Joakim Noah has reportedly been telling his teammates that he’s done with the Bulls.
Relegated to limited minutes off the bench, Noah struggled through one of his worst campaigns in 2015-16—playing in just 29 games and averaging a career-worst 4.3 points on just 38.3 percent shooting.
The Bulls reportedly want to bring Noah back, but they may have burned too many bridges with their former First-Team All-NBA center.
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Joakim Noah may have belted out his last primal scream in a Bulls uniform.
According to a Bulls player, Noah has been telling teammates the last few weeks that he was done with the organization once free agency begins, and “has no trust in the front office getting this in the right direction.’’
What was offered up, however, was the fact that there seems to be a complete mistrust that multiple players have toward general manager Gar Forman, with Noah leading the way.
