Karnisovas is being given a lot of power to completely reshape Chicago’s basketball operations. He was clearly the top choice of the Bulls, and now that they’re hiring him, they’re letting him bring in who he wants. This is good news for the Bulls, who have been dysfunctional at the top for quite a while.
