Thibodeau joined the "Kap and Haugh show" last week and put the drama to bed and Bulls VP of basketball operations John Paxson did the same Thursday.
"To me, it's a dead issue," Paxson told David Kaplan and David Haugh. "With [Bulls GM Gar Forman], it's a dead issue...[Tom] does like our team. When we talk about players with Tom, we're always talking about who fits us and who fits him and those types of things.
"You don't always agree, and that's the nature of the business. One of the funny things is that it just seems like if there is a different opinion between Gar and myself and Tom or anybody else, people want to make more out of it than it is.
"You've worked with people before and you don't always see things the same way. But the bottom line is, at the end of the day, you have to agree that this is the direction we're going and we're all going to go in the same direction together.
"I know there's always going to be things said, but I think we're in a very good position in the relationship. How we communicate between Gar, myself and Tom is really good and we're just going to keep moving forward."
