Chicago Bulls Officially Release Rajon Rondo (DETAILS)

Here we go, we are not surprised about the decision the Bulls front office just made.




A year later after signing Rajon Rondo, Chicago finally realized the big mistake they did on trying to create a “Big 3” in Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade, and Rajon Rondo.

Rondo signed a two-year deal with the Bulls in 2016, which means he will get $3 million for the 2017-18 season because of his guaranteed contract. Rondo who is now 31 years of age, had a disappointing season. He averages 7.8 points per game, 6.7 assists, and 1.4 steals per game.

Rumor: Bulls ready to move on from Jimmy Butler

The Chicago Bulls ready to move on from Jimmy Butler this summer


Last summer, when the Chicago Bulls signed Dwayne Wade and Rajon Rondo, I knew from the start this team was going to be crazy. You sign guys during the offseason who need the ball to be effective, plus you already have Jimmy Butler, you know something was about to happen during the season.

But it seems like the Bulls front office does not know if Jimmy Butler is still part of the long-term plan. So what should the Chicago Bulls do this summer? One exec told Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer that the Bulls were going to move Butler.

Paul George and Jimmy Butler were involved in trade rumors at the deadline, and all indications are that those conversations will resume this offseason. One front-office source told me recently that Butler is “as good as gone,” while George sounds like a player who wants out.”

I believe Dwayne Wade is going to opt out of his contract and sign back with the Miami Heat, I don’t think he has plans to stay with the Bulls for a long time.

The Bulls should trade Butler for young players and for future draft picks. The Bulls should go ahead and start tanking next season without Butler. He should be traded to a team who can use a 2nd all star. We don’t want to see Jimmy Butlers career end up like Carmelo Anthony, so we are hoping for the best.

Cameron Payne: ‘I Want To Be The Guy For The Bulls’ Future’

Cameron Payne treated his trade from Oklahoma to Chicago as an opportunity.


“It’s going to take time, but I want to be the guy for the Bulls’ future,” Cameron Payne recently told The Vertical. “I felt like OKC wanted something else, and I’m happy that Chicago felt the need to come trade for me. With what they gave up to get me, it meant a lot. The role that they want me to play … it’s tough. We’re in the middle of the season, and I got to learn a lot in such a short time period.”

“I’m trying to pick up as much as I can. It’s a different style of game play, a totally different group of guys. It took me a year to get to know those guys in OKC, and now I have a month and a half.”

So far, Payne has played 6 games as a Bull and is averaging 6 points, 2 assists, and 1.3 rebounds per game on 15 minutes per game

The Bulls have given opportunities to Rajon Rondo, Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams since moving on from Derrick Rose.

“When I was in OKC, I knew I would be playing behind Russell (Westbrook) as long as we were there,” Payne told The Vertical. “I was with a veteran guy who’s in his prime, playing unbelievable, and I get to watch and see it right through my eyes. That was a learning experience where I just wanted to learn from him. I take everything he taught me, everything I learned, and I get to use it now.”

“Seeing the floor, knowing time and score and when to get off a shot and when you can’t. Knowing that coming late in the game, how every possession is important. I need to get better at all of that. Russ comes in every day in practice and approaches it as a game. I take that as a great example to abide by.”

Payne has two seasons remaining on his rookie contract.

Bulls management said it targeted Payne, who went 14th overall in 2015, in the draft.

“I feel it’s a blessing in disguise, leaving and coming to Chicago,” Payne told The Vertical. “I’m super excited to get an opportunity to play. I want to attack this, and get better and do my best when I get out on the court.”

2017 NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Winners and Losers

2017 NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Winners and Losers


This year NBA trade deadline was not as big as others in the past year. The only big name star that was traded was DaMarcus Cousins. Other than him, regular role players were traded before Thursday 12 pm pacific time. Other super star names that we were expecting to hear was Paul George, Jimmy Butler, Carmelo, and even Blake griffin.  None of these teams did much to make them better for the 2nd half of the season. The Clippers are still stuck in the same place, just like the Bulls, Pacers, and Knicks.
Below, are all the trades that happen during the past few days.

Chicago Bulls Tanking this season

The Chicago Bulls tanking, should be their main goal!!!

Let me explain,


In recent games, Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade have shown how frustrated they have been playing along with other teammates. It seems at times the players do not want to win enough like Wade and Butler. In all fairness, the Chicago Bulls knew what they were getting when they sign an aging Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo.

The Chicago bulls need to trade Jimmy Butler for future draft picks and let Dwyane Wade leave during the offseason. That’s right I said it, the Chicago Bulls tanking should be their priority for the rest of the season. I believe, the Bulls should press the restart button, and tank for the future.
