John Paxson Rumors
KC Johnson: Pax: “Both Niko and Bobby are on our roster right now. And Niko’s getting cleared to do more and more. This obviously is coming to a position where it’s going to have to be resolved between the two.” Reminder: Mirotic can’t be traded until Jan. 15.
KC Johnson: Isn’t it weird that Portis and Mirotic are in gym together and not talking? Pax: “They are adults. This is our workplace. They’re both part of the team. I think it’s pretty simple.” Translated: Bulls have been accommodating but both players under contract. They need to meet soon.
Vincent Goodwill: Nikola Mirotic is in the building. John Paxson said Niko hasn’t had contact with Bobby Portis, won’t say if the trade request has been rescinded
