The Chicago Bulls will interview Kenny Atkinson for the vacant head coaching position, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Atkinson is considered a strong candidate to take over Chicago.

The Bulls’ front office will also have interviews with several other coaches, including Dallas Mavericks deputies Jamahl Mosley and Stephen Silas and Ime Udoka of the Philadephia 76ers.

Chicago has also asked permission to interview (once they exit the “bubble”) Bucks’ assistant Darvin Ham, Denver Nuggets assistant Wes Unseld Jr. and Miami Heat’s Dan Craig.

The Bulls finished 11th in the East last season, with a 22-43 record.
