2 of the 3 better be Nate McMillan and Billy Donovan. I guess the real question is, would they want to even coach here.

The candidate pool is too rich to hire a rookie HC, imo.


Uh Nat McMillan isn't a candidate for the Bulls or any job. He is taking a year off.

That screams 'professional and thorough' to me more than anything. There's a thirst for info with Bulls fans and it's making people impatient that there's no news. There's literally nothing out there from the Bulls end about what they're thinking or who they're targeting.

I'll choose to sit back and see how it plays out.


The no leaks might be the most impressive thing. Truly professional.

I’d think it’s Craig Unseld and Udoka.

I bet that coach will be hired before group workouts too.

Don't think it's a bad idea to replicate what Denver has done

It's starting to feel more and more like this is the road we are taking. Either him or Craig given the length of time.

Likely had a top candidate out of the blocks, did interviews and were impressed by others. Could be using the final interviews to reach a consensus.

This is what an actual coaching search looks like.

i wonder if there's anything substantive to that (i.e. he's our guy and arturas is leaking stuff to help raise his profile), or if woj is just doing general fluffery to make an agent feel good

If there is one thing we know about AK is that he is patient. I beginning to think Unseld, Jr has been his personal target and simply waiting for his season to come to an end. I think once AK can get Unseld to Chicago for an interview, the coaching search is over. Not stating a fact just my opinion.

It really feels like it as this point. The Nuggets comeback only fuels it.

These type comments and the ones shared earlier lead me to believe that the Denver leadership is teeing up AK's hiring of Unseld.

So much hype around Unseld Jr that people are putting their money on it and the sportsbooks have taken down the line.
