Report: Bulls preventing Lopez buyout to join Warriors

Marc Stein reported over the weekend that the Warriors would have significant interest in Lopez, but according to Chris Hayes of Yahoo Sports, Chicago doesn't want to make that happen for the two-time defending champions.

Lopez has been vocal about his desire for a change of scenery, even wanting to negotiate a buyout with the Bulls so he can join the defending National Basketball Association champion Warriors.

"I don't think there's an National Basketball Association player that doesn't want to be on a winning team, a playoff team", Lopez told Yahoo Sports after Chicago was routed by the Dubs 146-109 Friday night.

The Chicago Bulls are adamant that they will not negotiate a buyout with center Robin Lopez, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

"You go there, they share the ball, they play defense, they play the right way", Lopez said of potentially joining the Warriors. You never know what's going to happen in the National Basketball Association.

Should the 30-year-old join the Warriors, he would reunite with Steve Kerr, who drafted Lopez in the first round in 2008 when the former was still general manager of the Phoenix Suns.

It's speculated that Lopez is unhappy with his situation as he is stuck in a rebuilding team during the twilight of his career. "And there's a certain joy in trying to build a culture like that, and I appreciate being a veteran in that position of helping shepherd a team towards that point". The Bulls now have the fourth-worst record in the league.

If Robin Lopez had it his way, he'd be playing for a playoff contender at the moment. "I felt like we had some guys who are sick of not winning games". However, the Bulls do not want to buy him out and are still hopeful they can trade Lopez rather than letting him walk for nothing.

Lopez is averaging 5.6 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game, his lowest totals since the 2011-12 season.
