Boylen's players contacted the NBA Players Association less than a week into his tenure because they felt he was being too tough with over-the-top workouts.

The Bulls have gone 5-13 under Boylen since Hoiberg was sacked December 3rd. That's when details of Jim Boylen's restructured deal surfaced, as first reported by Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times and soon followed by our Shams Charania. Boylen was slated to make just over $800,000 for the rest of this season. He already was guaranteed the almost $1 million in his previous contract as associate head coach.

Game of Thrones Season 8 release date confirmed, teaser trailer revealed
The final season of Game of Thrones may only have six episodes, but each of them is poised to make a huge impact . Along with the premiere date, HBO also released an nearly 2-minute long teaser, "The Crypts of Winterfell".

A gesture that the front office appreciated since they would be paying the remainder of Hoiberg's $5 million through 2018-19, as well as another $5 million they owed Hoiberg for next season.

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski, Boylen has $1M guaranteed of a $1.6M salary for the 2019-20 season. The team's drama has cooled off lately, but the Bulls have lost six straight, including a 146-109 drubbing at Golden State on Friday.
