Isiah Thomas explained why the hiring of Billy Donovan is a good decision for the Chicago Bulls.

Donovan agreed to a multi-year contract with Chicago and wants to bring the Bulls back to the postseason.

“I think it’s a good hire. And the reason why I think that it’s a good hire is Chicago is a young team. And not only they are a young team, they’re a young team that Billy will be familiar with their talent because he scouted all of them when they were in high school.

So he knows exactly what he’s walking into, the type of players he’s about to coach so I think Chicago has got a chance with Billy and Maurice Cheeks coming back home, I think that’s going to be a great situation for the Chicago Bulls,” Thomas told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com.
