Veteran Bulls center Joakim Noah, his representatives and the Chicago front office continue to have a “positive dialogue” about a new contract amid a report that Noah has been telling teammates he’s ready to leave the franchise, a league source told ESPN.com on Wednesday. Those close to Noah, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, are still hopeful that he will be able to work out an agreement to stay in Chicago long term.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday that Noah has been telling teammates he is ready to leave the Bulls. According to an unnamed player quoted in the report, Noah “has no trust in the front office getting this in the right direction.”
