After former assistant Del Harris' offseason departure, Bulls assistant
coach Bernie Bickerstaff, who has held four head-coaching jobs, stands
out as the most natural interim replacement should Chicago decide to
continue a tradition of Christmas-season coaching changes that
previously claimed Tim Floyd and Scott Skiles. But NBA coaching sources
told ESPN.com that one name already on the Bulls' radar is New Jersey's
just-dismissed Lawrence Frank.
If the Bulls fire Del Negro, Frank wouldn't be the worst addition. The team obviously wasn't working for him this season, but Devin Harris exploded under him, and he did a pretty solid job coaching a mediocre group of players in New Jersey for his entire tenure there.
I don't know much about him really, but I've always thought the Nets record outperformed their talent, so maybe he's not so bad. He also has worked with top tier PGs and catered his offense around them, so that would spell good things for the direction the Bulls want to head.
