Ime Udoka remains at the forefront for the Chicago Bulls’ head coaching position, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Udoka finished the season as an assistant coach in Brett Brown’s coaching staff in the Philadelphia 76ers, while he started his career in San Antonio and worked closely with Gregg Popovich.
“Assistant coach Ime Udoka of the 76ers was said to be the early leader in the clubhouse, according to several NBA scouts, and there have been no indications that Udoka’s high standing has changed, especially with official interviews still being scheduled,” Cowley wrote.
After the Chicago Bulls clean sweep in the front office, the franchise, with Arturas Karnisovas in charge, will want to find a coach that could improve the team’s young core.
The franchise will choose fourth in the upcoming draft and have the chance to bring in another young talented player in the squad. The Bulls finished the 2019-2020 season with only 22 wins.
