Two sources familiar with the Bulls' thinking continued to paint the
situation as Thibodeau's job to lose and that an offer is expected to
come this weekend.
Former Nets coach Lawrence Frank has been advised he's no longer a candidate.
Looks like the Bulls will get their man this time.
As I've said before, Thibodeau is my top candidate for the job. To reiterate the basic positives here:
1: He has a spectacular record when it comes to designing defenses in the NBA.
2: He has a long history of NBA success and worked his way up and has true high level responsibilities as an assistant in his stops
3: He has an excellent reputation. Of all the coaches in the NBA, he's probably the hire that brings the highest cache with him which should help lure FAs.
4: He works with the same agency as Bosh/Wade/LeBron which gives us some back channel paths in there to help recruit FAs.
We'll see how it all works out, but it will be a feather the Bulls' cap when/if this gets done.
