Another day, another rumor linking Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau to another NBA franchise.

Word came out Monday morning saying the Memphis Grizzlies would have interest in trying to trade for Thibodeau. That's on top of the persistent Lakers and Knicks rumors that have come up over the last few months.

But, Thibodeau is still under contract with the Bulls, having just finished up the first season of his four-year extension.

Maybe Thibodeau's public rift with general manager Gar Forman and the front office is making people believe the former NBA Coach of the Year is available for the right price.

As Jordan Bernfield said on SportsTalk Live, "who wouldn't want Tom Thibodeau?" He's one of the most respected coaches in the game, but it still seems far-fetched to think the Bulls would ever part ways with him, even in a trade.

So how do these rumors keep coming about?
