The February 6th trade deadline is drawing closer but Jim Boylen surprisingly insisted that he wants the current band to stay intact.
“Yeah, absolutely,” Boylen said. “I’ve said before that we have a hardworking, high-character group of guys who are willing to be coached and willing to work. That’s a credit to them. Those are things I think are important.” The Bulls have absolutely underachieved this season but there has been no indication that they are willing to shuffle their roster. Boylen continues to believe that everything is going to be alright but time is running out and someone will soon have to take the blame for a poor season that has seen Lauri Markkanen take a step back and become more of a spot-up shooter.
