Chicago Bulls Rumors
The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has hired Doug Collins as a Senior Advisor of Basketball Operations. In his new role with the club, Collins will report to Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson.
One of the most respected figures in all of basketball, Collins returns to the Bulls with more than 40 years of experience in the NBA. In this capacity, he will serve as an expert resource for the front office and coaching staff. “Doug will be great in this capacity for our organization. The position of ‘senior advisor’ has proven to work well around the NBA in recent years, and I am confident the same will hold true with the Bulls,” said Chicago Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf. “The fact that our relationship goes back more than 30 years certainly helps, but he is especially qualified to assist our leadership in rebuilding the Bulls.”
With all the whispers of him being bought out by the Chicago Bulls … we had to ask when we got D-Wade and Gabrielle Union leaving Catch in L.A. Wade played it super coy — just like when we asked about a potential LeBron reunion — but he also couldn’t stop cheesin’ … which kinda makes us think he’s heard from ex-Heat bro, Udonis Haslem. Hard to say which way he’s leanin’ … but the NBA superstar does still call South Beach home, FYI.
