Bulls Reportedly Won't Rest Starters Anymore After NBA's Tanking Message

Bulls Reportedly Won't Rest Starters Anymore After NBA's Tanking Message

At this stage of the campaign, the goal of losing teams is to secure the best possible position in the draft lottery and the league is aware they'll only do this by accruing as many losses as possible in the remaining games. Lopez (12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds) has sat the last six games, while Holiday (13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds) has played just once in the previous six. Rest is OK, but resting healthy players too much or at inopportune times can be seen as bad for the league. But then again, what the Bulls would get a warning for is entirely their fault.

Paxson says the league communicated with the team after the All-Star break about those two players and their diminishing roles.

The league discourages the practice of resting healthy players in an attempt to limit overt "tanking" by teams searching for a top pick in the National Basketball Association draft. "We respect the communication and cooperative dialogue with the league and will adhere to their recommendation going forward.", via Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago. The NBA fined Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban $600,000 last month after Cuban said on Julius Erving's podcast that he talked to his players about how it was in the organization's best interest to lose games down the stretch.

The NBA is getting serious about its crackdown on tanking as they warn the Chicago Bulls organization to stop resting healthy players. Lopez was averaging 25.5 minutes per game for the Bulls before the All-Star break, but has not taken the court for the team since.
