Who Will Fill Chicago’s Coaching Vacancy?

The Bulls will know their draft position before they learn the identity of their coach.

That’s no surprise given that more than a month before Tuesday’s NBA draft lottery, general manager John Paxson emphasized no timetable existed to replace Jim Boylan.

The Mike D’Antoni dalliance expedited matters for a brief stretch. But when D’Antoni spurned the Bulls for the Knicks, Paxson retreated to his stance of letting the interview process play out, with several candidates in play. [Chicago Tribune]
