Sam Presti from Oklahoma City and Masai Ujiri in Toronto was never hunted.
Only two white whales known to S. S. Reinsdorf cannot be captured or even run over.
In that case, perhaps the re-establishment of the Bulls front office will always be disappointing, especially for a fan base who hopes a big executive can land, giving the organization a new voice, better direction.
Instead, Monday is more about who else is out of running than who he really is.
Toronto media members reported that Raptors general manager Bobby Webster remained, almost reaching a new agreement to maintain his current role, while GM vice president of operations / basketball assistant Adam Simon would also stay in the Heat organization he had spent. decade with, starting as a video coordinator.
This is Simon’s news which is a real slap in the face, when COO Bulls Michael Reinsdorf is eyeing the Miami Heat model. The best way to duplicate that model? Take the key figure from him.
An executive told the Sun-Times on Monday that Simon would be the best way for the Bulls to leave, and would give the front office restructuring instant credibility.
Over the weekend, Indiana Pacers GM Chad Buchanan withdrew from the interview process, also choosing to stay.
A source close to the situation said that Utah Jazz GM Justin Zanik was interviewed by video on Monday, and GM Nuggets Arturas Karnisovas was also scheduled to do the same.
Zanik, who attended Northwestern before taking the route of a player agent who later became an NBA executive, was more than a “hat person,” building a solid reputation as a great communicator and understanding of how to delegate player scouting and development.
Karnisovas’ forces are lurking – both at the university and international level – and also play an important role in several important agreements that have lifted Denver back to threats in the Western Region.
As previously reported by the Sun-Times, this will be the production of Michael Reinsdorf, with his father – and team leader – Jerry Reinsdorf a key figure in the background and in final decision making.
The source said that the current VP Bulls from John Paxson’s basketball operations were not in Zanik’s interview, and had chosen to move to the background with a choice.
Paxson will retain a key role in the organization, and even if he is no longer involved in decisions taken in daily basketball operations, he will still be an influential board for both Reinsdorfs, as well as advisers who understand what Reinsdorf wants in the Bulls culture.
