"Bulls have had issues with the “spying’’ that goes on in the locker room."
There's plenty of drama within the Chicago Bulls locker room between Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo calling each other out recently to the media and the team's overall lackluster play so far this season.
To make matters worse Jimmy Butler is reportedly worried about spies within the locker room that could be discussing internal conversations with Bulls GM Gar Forman.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times:
"Butler and other. He warned new players that if they didn’t want Forman to hear criticism, they shouldn’t talk in front of certain assistant coaches such as Randy Brown."
"The belief is that the Bulls love to gather as much ammunition as they can on players, so they can win the news conference when the breakup comes, whether it’s a trade or free agency."
“They did it with [Luol Deng], and they did it with [Joakim Noah] and Derrick [Rose],’’ a source said. “That’s how they operate.’’
Butler has recently described his relationship with GM Gar Forman as "professional" but just last year it was the Bulls front office that leaked a story claiming their All-Star guard was a "diva."
Despite the recent string of issues within the Bulls organization, they blew out OKC last night to get back to .500 on the season. Although, a 25-25 record is not exactly what the team had envisioned coming into the year.
