Colangelo resigned from his job with the Sixers nearly two years ago following an embarrassing situation where it was determined that his wife (allegedly) was running a burner Twitter account and revealed sensitive team information through it. Colangelo maintained that he knew nothing about the account, but the 76ers were forced to part ways with him.
If you ignore the Twitter shenanigans in Philly, Colangelo was a successful executive for many years. He was named the 2007 NBA Executive of the Year with the Toronto Raptors and has plenty of experience. While hiring him could create some issues from a public relations standpoint, you can understand why a team like the Bulls would have interest.
