Boylen has made a decision to drop Parker from his regular rotation, ESPN's Malika Andrews reported Thursday, citing sources. But the Chicago Sun-Times reported Parker's path back to playing time is through what he does in practice, especially defensively, as Boylen tries to create accountability and set a new level of expectations for a team that's now 6-23.

Leading men: LaVine, Robin Lopez, Justin Holiday, Bobby Portis and Markkanen compose the Bulls' leadership committee, whose formation coach Jim Boylen announced Tuesday.

Jabari Parker might not be bench-ridden for long.

According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have "engaged in trade talks with several teams" as they attempt to find a solution that works for both parties. "I think these great players in the National Basketball Association, they have lots of different coaches over their careers. and there are different styles".

Harden's 50-point triple-double lifts Rockets past Lakers
Harden connected on 18 of those attempts from the charity stripe while also knocking down four threes. Aside from the foul calls, LeBron James and the Lakers were 15-of-27 from the free throw line.

"At the moment we confirmed to the people of who's coming to the game, folks were really excited about the Utah Jazz because they saw them play in the past season during a great playoffs and everything", said NBA Mexico Vice President and Managing Director Raul Zarraga.

Parker is notably deficient on the defensive end, and his own comments about players not being paid to play defense confirm his lack of effort to change that.

Before the game against the Magic, Boylen said rookie Chandler Hutchison was hit by illness and wouldn't play. Beyond that, it is hard to off-set his one-way nature when, at the moment, Parker is posting a 52 percent true shooting and more turnovers than assists.

It is understood that while Boylen has a directive from the Bulls management to be tough, the players have so far viewed his methods as "excessive". "I like Hutch. Hutch was sick tonight so Jabari got some of those minutes at three in that situation". Defensive struggles aside, Parker could provide a team with an offensive boost. Since being back in the lineup, Markkanen has averaged 13.8 points and shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc.
