All is not well in the Windy City. Namely, between Zach LaVine and the Chicago Bulls.

Amid the team’s surprising 11-18 season, Shams Charania and Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reported Tuesday that “multiple league sources and sources close to the organization say LaVine and the Bulls are not seeing eye to eye. Over the past few weeks, there’s been a palpable feeling across various parts of the franchise of a disconnect over LaVine’s situation in Chicago.”

Charania and Mayberry added the Bulls have held “have held multiple team meetings to try to work out their issues, and that has included one-on-one, face-to-face sitdowns” with LaVine and DeMar DeRozan.

Per that report, LaVine and DeRozan have maintained a strong personal relationship, but on the court a level of “stylistic tension” has been palpable.

LaVine told Sharania and Mayberry:

“There’s a certain level of frustration in people trying to figure out what we can do to help right the ship. I think with the players that we have, we try to put it on each other to right the ship.
