Core not on floor as Bulls, coach Fred Hoiberg wait for better days

Photos from the Bulls-Kings game at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif. on Monday, Feb. 5, 2018.

    Core not on floor as Bulls, coach Fred Hoiberg wait for better days
    LaVine, Markkanen and Dunn. It may sound like an international law firm. But it's actually coach Fred Hoiberg 's lifeline. Nobody said this rebuilding stuff was going to be easy, particularly when the core has played just three games together and all with Zach LaVine logging just 20 minutes.
