Zach LaVine seems to be setting the stage for his departure from the Chicago Bulls. Perhaps an incident on Sunday led him to feel like it’s time to move on.
The Bulls lost to the Timberwolves 150-126 to drop to 11-18. They allowed 71 points in the first half, and then they had a halftime blowup, according to a few reporters.
Bulls reporter Joe Cowley reported about the situation.
Sources indicated that there was a blowup between players at halftime of the Timberwolves loss, causing Bulls coaches to go into the locker room while they were talking outside. Source said it was the second time it happened. The other was right after a game.

Reporter K.C. Johnson later said that the blowup had to do with players being frustrated with LaVine.

So let’s get this straight: Bulls teammates got ticked off at LaVine during a frustrating loss. Two days later, LaVine vents his frustration through a report that seems like the first step towards him eventually requesting a trade. That’s not good.
In the fourth quarter of the game, veteran guard Goran Dragic seemed to be frustrated with LaVine.
Dragic was pissed here.
I'm trying to work out if he was mad at Zach not continuing to rotate the ball in the corner (DJJ) or at the ref.
