Tom Thibodeau and the Bulls’ front office clearly have issues with each other . The key question: How significant? Thibodeau is an excellent coach, in spite of his tendency to run his players into the ground. He’s also under contract for two seasons after this one. The Bulls could very well want him back next season – but that’s not a certainty. They’re reportedly even enamored with Fred Hoiberg as Thibodeau’s replacement .
