The Bulls are "adamant" about refusing to negotiate a buyout with Robin Lopez, per a report from Yahoo Sports.
Lopez has been working with the organization on an exit but the team does not want to buy him out, instead preferring to move him in a trade to recoup some assets. The report adds that Lopez will head to Golden State if he is bought out. While Lopez is clearly not long for Chicago, it's understandable that the Bulls don't want to go the buyout route — frankly it's a weird time of year, where bad teams just allow good players to go play for good teams without getting any benefit. If Lopez is set on joining the Warriors, or another top-level team, it's hard to imagine him holding fantasy value this season.
