I feel as though at this point, stating that there’s trouble in paradise within the Bulls would be redundant, but nonetheless… there’s trouble in paradise.

According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times on a radio spot today, Bulls big man Lauri Markkanen is fed up with the circus act.

Speaking on 670 The Score, Cowley had this to say, “Lauri Markkanen doesn’t want to stay here [Chicago], doesn’t want to play here, doesn’t want to play with this structure that he has right now,” Cowley said. “When he can go, he’s going to.”

Welp. That seems about right.

Markkanen, who came to Chicago on draft night as part of the 2017 trade of Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves, got off to a promising start with the Bulls under then-head coach Fred Hoiberg, but has struggled mightily this season under Jim Boylen and is not surprisingly growing tired of the struggles. Currently, Markkanen is out with an pelvis injury he suffered in late January, and he’s not expected back until sometime in March.

Markkanen is under control through next season, the second of his two team options on his rookie scale contract.
