The Bulls will undergo a major overhaul in their front-office staff with Arturas Karnisovas as the President of Basketball Operations.

As a result, Scottie Pippen was fired from the position of the “Special Advisor to the President & COO” Michael Reinsdorf.

“I got fired this year. I didn’t really want it to be in the public, but I’m no longer employed by the Bulls,” Pippen said on Thuzio Live & Unfilteredvia K.C. Johnson and Rob Schaefer of NBC Sports Chicago.

“It’s probably a good thing, right?” Pippen said to Greenstein. “I like to associate myself with winning.”

Pippen was an ambassador of the team in order to boost the Bulls’ brand by speaking highly of the organization in various media outlets.
