John Paxson will remain with the Chicago Bulls in an advisory role, per Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Paxson will move into an advisory role once Arturas Karnisovas officially takes the Bulls’ top executive job.

“A source said that John Paxson will move into an advisory role, still being a sounding board for the Reinsdorfs – Jerry and Michael – and would only offer opinions in basketball matters if Karnisovas asks. This is completely Karnisovas’ show, and an important one.

However, a source indicated that Karnisovas had no issues with the Reinsdorfs keeping Paxson around. The Sun-Times reported earlier this week that Paxson, himself, was poised to step down from the organization if asked, but it never came down to that.”
