Foregone Conclusion


New Chicago Bulls Front Office Leaning Toward Replacing Coach Boylen

Jim Boylen’s time with the Chicago Bulls seems to be coming to an end.

Whether or not the NBA is to finish its season, it appears that the Bulls’ new front office is ready to find their own guy for next season.

According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, the team’s new VP of Basketball Operations Arturas Karnisovas and General Manager Marc Eversley have received mixed feedback on the 55-year old head coach. The reported added that several key players have also ripped on Boylen to the executives during this hiatus.

“My initial impression of Jim is he cares a great deal about this team and he’s as anxious as everyone else to get back in the gym,” Karnisovas said recently. “I’m going to do my comprehensive evaluation of every department and ensure I give the process the time it deserves. We are limited right now with what we can do [because of the coronavirus shutdown].”

The hiatus may have done nothing more but delay the inevitable in Chicago.

Boylen has had numerous verbal run-ins with players in his two years at the helm, including a couple of heated confrontations with the organization’s budding star, Zach LaVine. Other players such as former lottery pick Lauri Markkanen have been very vocal that change is necessary.

With names such as Mark Jackson and Tyronn Lue eying returns to head coaching, the Bulls will surely have a number of suitors for the opening this offseason.
