Bulls’ Rondo Says He Never Received Reason for Benching


Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo said he never received a clear explanation for his benching and believes the answers he did get from a member of the coaching staff were “bulls—.”

Rondo, who prior to Tuesday night had not played since the second half of a Dec. 30 loss to the Indiana Pacers, spoke for almost 10 minutes ahead of the team’s 101-99 loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday and acknowledged that this is the most confusing circumstance he has been through in his career. He also noted that he hasn’t shared more than a few words with coach Fred Hoiberg since his benching, but he declined to name which member of the Bulls’ staff gave him the reasoning behind his benching.
