The Chicago Bulls are refusing to negotiate a buyout agreement with Robin Lopez, preferring to trade him for an asset. 

Lopez's representatives have been working to reach a buyout agreement with the team since December, though Lopez has yet to personally approach the Bulls.

“I’m not heavily involved in [buyout talks] because I try to stay focused in on the day-to-day. My [agent] keeps me informed of the bigger bullet points, abreast of the more important news,” said Lopez.

Lopez would be interested in joining the Warriors if he were bought out, saying "I think it’s an appealing situation for just about anybody in the league. You go there, they share the ball, they play defense, they play the right way”.
