Gamers have to be waived by their current crew by the finish of March 1 in get to be playoff-suitable ought to they join a new crew. In other text, if the Bulls waive Lopez anytime immediately after these days, he would not be able to play in the postseason for the Warriors (or any other crew).
And, in accordance to Marc Stein of The New York Instances, the Bulls have no intention of indicating goodbye to Lopez these days.
The Bulls, meanwhile, have been adamant they will not likely obtain out Robin Lopez … evidently established to keep him away from the Warriors. Would not seem at all like something will alter in the following 12 hours RoLo would not be playoff-suitable except he is bough out by 11:59 PM tonight

Lopez and the Warriors have been linked for a even though, with reported mutual interest ought to a buyout manifest. But immediately after the Bulls shook items up – and dropped commencing middle Wendell Carter Jr. to damage – Lopez has moved from the back of the bench into a commencing function. And he appears satisfied keeping in Chicago, even though the Bulls are considerably out of the playoff race.
With Lopez seemingly off the desk, there aren’t numerous solutions remaining for the Warriors as they seem to fill their 15th roster spot. With the constrained selections, I would imagine that two-way contract (and Steph Curry brother-in-legislation) Damion Lee is now the frontrunner to generate a contract.
