Paxson Talking to a ‘Surprising’ Candidate

Two words emanated from Bulls camp Friday regarding Doug Collins: Slow down.

Several sources close to Collins remain convinced the job is his for the taking. Collins, according to people who have spoken to him, remains extremely excited about the possibility of returning to coach the Bulls.

Yet Collins understands general manager John Paxson still seeks to interview other candidates. One person familiar with the Bulls’ plans said one such interview involves a veteran coach that nobody has identified that would be surprising. [Chicago Tribune]
