Definitely surprised Bulls traded Portis. But don't agree with talk of "no loyalty." They offered him a multi-year extension worth $40-50M last Fall. He said no, which is certainly Portis' right. Also, word around league is Portis is looking for $16M annually this summer in RFA.

It’s not often you see blogs/articles saying anything positive about the Chicago Bulls organization. The front office is looked at like a joke and unloyal to the players on their roster.
K.C Johnson tweeted out that the Bulls wanted to make it work with Bobby, but much like Jimmy Butler did, Bobby bet on himself, but it didn’t pay off. Bobby has battled injuries this year and only has appeared in 22 games. Though he does have career highs in PPG and RPG, the money he is asking for isn’t worth it for a 3rd big.
