Jim Boylen Rumors

Because of a vociferous postgame exchange with an assistant coach, the Chicago Bulls suspended guard Rajon Rondo for Monday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, league sources told The Vertical. The confrontation in the aftermath of Saturday night’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks, directed primarily at top assistant coach Jim Boylen, led to the organizational suspension for “conduct detrimental to the team.” Rondo apologized to the coaching staff and his teammates on Sunday, and as one source said, “took responsibility for it.”
