NBA Warns Bulls About Resting Healthy Players

NBA Warns Bulls About Resting Healthy Players

The Bulls are 21-42 and now sit in the eighth position in the lottery, per ESPN.

The NBA is getting serious about its crackdown on tanking as they warn the Chicago Bulls organization to stop resting healthy players. Tanking is an option for them, but with the league office now watching them closely, they will have to prove that they are not trying to lose on goal in order to have a better chance of landing one of the top picks in the next draft.

The heart of the matter.

.

Bulls executive vice president John Paxson has explained that they have had discussions with the league office regarding the best way to handle the remaining 19 games this season. One of them is Robin Lopez, who has been informed that he will receive some court action this weekend during their games.

The Bulls didn't go the full Mark Cuban and tell everyone tanking would be good for them, but their front office did say at the All-Star break they had instructed coach Fred Hoiberg to prioritize playing the young guys. "Nine or 10 is the most, so we're going to start looking at blocks of games where we'll be having a few guys that haven't been playing much or at all, where they'll have a significant role for us".

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver sent out a memo to all 30 teams recently saying that while developing younger players is a legitimate way to improve a team (especially late in the season for those out of the playoff chase) he would not tolerate tanking.

Chicago (21-42) had rested center Robin Lopez and guard Justin Holiday in recent weeks but after a conversation with the league, agreed to play the two players more extensively. They have lost seven of their last 10 games.

National Basketball Association teams are tanking at an impressive rate as the 2017-18 season comes to a close, and the league is not happy about it.

Holiday was back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies.
