There have been other reports of a three-year deal similar to the
contract Del Negro worked under and that former Chicago prep star and
76ers All Star Mo Cheeks and former Bulls assistant Ron Adams, both now
on the staff of the Oklahoma City Thunder, could work with Thibodeau.
Another source, whose information could not be confirmed, said
Thibodeau has been given an informal offer in preparation for working
out an official deal.
Sam adds on to the pile that the Bulls are close to closing a deal with Thibodeau as an informal offer may have been made, but interestingly, he states that Mo Cheeks (what a porn name) and Ron Adams might become assistants for the Bulls as well.
That'd make for an excellent staff to come on board. In other assistant news, I've heard that Bernie Bickerstaff is definitely out while Pete Myers will stay. Not sure on Bob Oceipka, but without any insider information on the topic, I'd guess he's probably gone.
If there are carry overs from the old staff, I think it will be the lower level guys (Hunter, Brown, and Myers).
