The Bulls have yet to pick up Rondo’s option according to Sean Highkin.
This only backs up the speculation that the Bulls could be in discussion about trading Jimmy Butler. If Butler is traded the Bulls could be in rebuild mode and would not re-sign Rondo. The other possibility is that Butler gets traded and the Bulls receive some valuable pieces to still compete. If that happens they could re-sign Rondo and hope to make a playoff push with a revamped roster. As usual, it appears the Bulls are struggling to have a design for the future.
