Sources Say Mike D’Antoni Wants Job with Chicago Bulls

Mike D’Antoni has told John Paxson he wants to be the Bulls’ next coach, according to sources.

Whether Paxson has the same wish remains to be seen after the Bulls’ general manager spent parts of Sunday and Monday with the Suns’ coach in Phoenix.

If nothing else, Paxson is staying true to his word to keep this critically important search wide-ranging and open-ended. Not many searches travel from relatively anonymous Nuggets assistant Mike Dunlap to the high-profile D’Antoni within a wild 24 hours. [Chicago Tribune]
