Gar Forman Rumors
KC Johnson: Bulls say exec VP John Paxson and GM Gar Forman will hold season-end session with reporters Wednesday at 11 am.
Another intriguing twist Friday night came late in the fourth quarter when fans started to scream “Fire Hoiberg” throughout the United Center. While it’s clear that many fans would rather not see Hoiberg back with the Bulls next season, Bulls general manager Gar Forman has been on record earlier in the year as saying Hoiberg would be back to start next season.
“Jerry was a great basketball executive who I was fortunate to have worked for when I first joined the Bulls,” said General Manager Gar Forman. “For those that did not know him, Jerry was an even better person. He was a quality human being who treated everyone great. He will be missed dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”
Nick Friedell: Interesting how many times players have noted an apparent lack of communication with Hoiberg/coaching staff in regard to rotation/minutes. Both younger players and veterans have expressed feeling unclear/unsure on what they need to do to get more minutes in the rotation. Gar Forman sold Fred Hoiberg a great communicator when he was hired. It seems like he is still struggling to get his message across sometimes in 2nd year.
