John Paxson Rumors
Nick Friedell: Pax: “After the All-Star Break we had communication with the league office about Robin and Justin’s roles — after healthy dialogue the league determined that their situations fall into the ‘player rest’ policy. We respect the communication and cooperative dialogue with the league and will adhere to their recommendations going forward.”
League sources said the Bulls remain extremely active in trade talks. Tellingly, when asked about waiving players, Paxson said a week remains until the Feb. 8 deadline. That suggests one could be used in another deal.
Darnell Mayberry: Paxson on getting a first-round pick for Mirotic: “When Niko did come back, he played with great confidence and played very well. And because of that, I think his value was as high as it’s ever been.” #Bulls #Bullsnation
