The Chicago Bulls have entered a new era by reshaping their front office. The team named Arturas Karnisovas president of basketball operations to shake things up on the rebuilding organization.
The former GM of the Denver Nuggets chose Marc Eversley for the Bulls’ general manager position, while he seems to be in the process of exploring his options on hiring a new head coach, per Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic.
A lot of Bulls fans – and league observers – expect coach Jim Boylen will lose his job, despite that Boylen expects to have a chance to make a pitch in order to stay.
“So who could the next coach be? Two current assistant coaches are standing out as increasingly possible Boylen replacements whenever the job may open: Toronto’s Adrian Griffin and Philadelphia’s Ime Udoka. Both have ties to the new front-office regime. Both have long been mentioned in coaching circles as lead-man material. And on multiple levels, both fit the mold the Bulls previously have pursued,” according to Mayberry.
