This is at least the second name that turned down an interview with the Bulls organization. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything bad, as the organization is casting a wide net in its search.
There’s one name that has received a high-profile endorsement, but that’s as far as that has gotten. The Bulls will ultimately receive plenty of interest, and with the NBA shut down, they have time to conduct a thorough process and find the right leader for their organization.
