Ελπίζω εκτός από front office, να γίνουν ριζικές αλλαγές στο τεχνικό επιτελείο.
Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen was unhappy with the organization and his role, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.

“Make no mistake about it, third-year big man Lauri Markkanen was one unhappy camper before the coronavirus put the NBA on hiatus,” Cowley wrote. “Unhappy enough that if the direction of the organization was going to stay unchanged, he’d rather be elsewhere.”

Ο Arturas Karnisovas είναι ο εκλεκτός για το front office.
The Chicago Bulls are hiring Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas to become the franchise's new executive vice president of basketball operations, league sources told ESPN.

The sides were finalizing contractual details on a multiyear deal late Wednesday night, after the team offered the job to Karnisovas shortly after completing a second round of interviews, sources said.

Karnisovas, 48, will replace John Paxson, who has been running the Bulls' basketball operations since 2003. Karnisovas will be tasked with reshaping the totality of an organization that has failed to reach the postseason the past two seasons, including hiring a new general manager and additional basketball operations and scouting positions, sources said.

The Bulls were taken with Karnisovas' history for talent evaluation and strong endorsements from Nuggets governor Josh Kroenke and president of basketball operations Tim Connelly about Karnisovas' leadership, organization and ability to structure operations, sources said.

Karnisovas had a lengthy virtual interview with Bulls chief operating officer Michael Reinsdorf, who is leading the search, on Tuesday, sources said. On Wednesday, Reinsdorf introduced Karnisovas to his father, Jerry, for additional discussions and got Jerry's blessing to offer Karnisovas the job.

Reinsdorf completed an initial round of virtual meetings Wednesday after an interview with former Atlanta Hawks GM Wes Wilcox, sources said.

Karnisovas' diverse background in the game captured the Bulls' attention from the start of this process, including his role in building the Nuggets into contenders with Connelly and Kroenke. The Nuggets' draft success has included All-NBA center Nikola Jokic, guards Jamal Murray and Gary Harris and former center Jusuf Nurkic.

Karnisovas had stops with the Houston Rockets' front office and the NBA league office after a decorated EuroLeague and Olympic-medal-winning playing career. A native of Lithuania, he left home as a teenager to play college basketball at Seton Hall.

Paxson is expected to move into an advisory role, and there will be discussions with GM Gar Forman about his future with the organization, sources said.

Ανακοινώθηκε επίσημα ο Arturas Karnisovas
The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has hired Arturas Karnisovas (Car-NISH-O-Vas) as Executive Vice President – Basketball Operations. In this role, Karnisovas will be responsible for all decisions made in Chicago's basketball operations department.

"Arturas is one of the most respected basketball executives in the NBA. His resumé speaks for itself. I am thrilled that he is now a member of the Bulls," said team President & COO Michael Reinsdorf. "As the new head of basketball operations, I am confident that his vision, ability to lead and experience helping build winning teams in Houston and Denver will serve him well here. I am very pleased to welcome him and his family to the City of Chicago and have him officially join our organization."

Karnisovas, 48, comes to the Bulls with nearly two decades of front-office experience, where he played a key role in the construction of championship contenders with the Denver Nuggets and the Houston Rockets. He most recently served as General Manager of the Denver Nuggets. Hired by Denver as the team's Assistant General Manager in 2013, he was promoted to Assistant General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations in 2016-17, before being elevated to General Manager in 2018.

"This is the height of a dream for me, and I am prepared for the challenge that it presents," said Karnisovas. "I grew up watching the Chicago Bulls. They represented American basketball and the NBA to a kid from Lithuania. I've always had a love for this franchise and to be a part of it and influence its revival is a privilege. I want to thank Jerry and Michael Reinsdorf and the entire Bulls organization for presenting me with this opportunity and welcoming me and my family to Chicago."

During his time with the Nuggets, some of the notable players the team drafted were Nikola Jokic (41st overall, 2014), Jamal Murray (seventh overall, 2017) and Michael Porter Jr. (14th overall, 2018). Karnisovas also played a role in the free-agent signing of Paul Millsap. Prior to this season's suspension of the NBA schedule, the Nuggets were on pace to improve their winning percentage for a fifth consecutive season. While with Denver, he was also involved with USA Basketball, serving as an International Personnel Scout for the 2014 FIBA World Cup squad that claimed gold in Spain.

He spent five years with the Houston Rockets (2008-13), starting as their Director of Global Scouting before being elevated to Director of Scouting. During his time in Houston, the team drafted Marcus Morris (14th overall, 2011) and Chandler Parsons (38th overall, 2011). In that same span, the Rockets also traded for Kyle Lowry, Goran Dragić and James Harden. Prior to his term with the Rockets, he worked more than four years at the NBA (2003-08) in its basketball operations division.

Karnisovas enjoyed a storied international career, where he played for Barcelona, Bologna, Olympiakos and Athens. He helped his team advance to the Euroleague Final Four on three occasions, and he claimed FIBA's European Player of the Year in 1996 while with Barcelona. He also was a three-time Spanish League champion with Barcelona (1996, 1997, 2001). As a member of Olympiakos Piraeus in the 1997 McDonald's Championship in Paris, he scored 19 points against the Chicago Bulls. In 1992, and again in 1996, he led his native Lithuania to bronze medals in the Summer Olympics.

A native of Klaipėda, Lithuania, Karnisovas came to the United States in 1990 at the age of 18. He played for P.J. Carlesimo at Seton Hall, where he became the first player from the Soviet Union to play college basketball in the United States. He went on to enjoy a decorated career for the Pirates, where he was a four-year starter and helped the Hall claim two Big East Tournament titles and make four trips to the NCAA Tournament. He finished his collegiate career with 1,509 points and was a two-time Big East Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. In 2016, he received Seton Hall's Most Distinguished Alumnus Award, the university's most prestigious alumni award which is presented to an individual who has been recognized as an outstanding leader in his or her professional field.

He and his wife, Gina, have two sons, Eric and Michael.

A formal introductory press conference will be held at a later date.

Δεν ξέρω αν κάνει για πρόεδρος ο Καρνισόβας, ως παίκτης πάντως είχε ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου στυλ σουταρίσματος. :D

Nέος GM o Marc Eversley πρώην των Sixers και ο πρώτος αφροαμερικανός στην ιστορία του franchise.
With a new executive vice president of basketball operations in place, the Bulls have reportedly moved on to hiring a general manager to pair with him.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and NBC Sports Chicago's K.C. Johnson reported early Monday morning that Chicago has come to terms with Philadephia 76ers Vice President of Player Personnel Marc Eversley, who will join Arturas Karnisovas in a reshaped front office aiming to turn around the Bulls.

Once the move becomes official, Eversley will become the first black general manager in Bulls history. Chicago previously had seen former Bulls players B.J. Armstrong and Randy Brown hold assistant general manager roles years ago.

Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley have received mixed feedback on the performance of Chicago Bulls coach Jim Boylen, and are leaning to replace him for next season, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Cowley adds that several key players reportedly ripped Boylen to Karnisovas and Eversley. The Reinsdorf family, who own the Bulls, along with former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson, would like Boylen to remain as head coach.

Πολύ παράξενο που ο Paxson και οι ιδιοκτήτες θέλουν ο Jim Boylen να παραμείνει προπονητής χωρίς έχει βελτιώσει την ομάδα από τότε που ανέλαβε. Οι περισσότεροι παίκτες έχουν μείνει στάσιμοι, με τον Markkanen να εμφανίζεται χειρότερος.
