CHICAGO (WLS) -- Joakim Noah will not return to the Bull because of a lack of confidence in the front office, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Noah is currently a free agent, but has been telling teammates that he is done with the Bulls and "has no trust in the front office getting this in the right direction,'' according to a Bulls player.

Noah and first-year coach Fred Hoiberg's relationship deteriorated this past season when Noah lost his starting position, but the Sun-Times's source says it wasn't Noah's reason for leaving.

Instead, players apparently have lost trust in general manager Gar Forman.

Noah is coming off one of his worst seasons in the NBA, averaging 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game before a season-ending shoulder injury.
