Jim Boylen's job safe for now

A team that entered the year with playoff hopes finds itself just 8-16 against a relatively soft early schedule. Yet our reading of the tea leaves says Jim Boylen is safe. For now. Probably. League sources say that team president John Paxson remains a fan of Boylen’s tough-love approach despite the disappointing results thus far. Part of the blame for the slow start can also be shared by injuries to Otto Porter and Chandler Hutchison that left the team with no real small forwards. Boylen’s defensive scheme has drawn plenty of criticism, especially since it’s an odd fit for a big lineup that aside from Thaddeus Young lacks fleet-footed bigs.

The No. 22 pick in the first round had been rebounding and passing well, but seemed somewhat reluctant to shoot after a good first game. But Hutchison was three of seven on threes against Dallas. “I think at this level and being summer league you have to take advantage and shoot,” Hutchison admitted. “I just wanted to rebound the ball and when I got an open look shoot the ball. Chicago, why they brought me in was my ability to rebound and also start the break offensively. I’ve had that in my game and it’s something that sets me apart.
He said he looks forward to playing with first-round draft picks Wendell Carter Jr. and Chandler Hutchinson. “I’m excited,” Dunn said. “We have some good players. It will help us with games and help bring excitement to the fans. Last year it was amazing to play in front of the fans. We didn’t have the year that we wanted last year. Hopefully this year we can get it back by going out and competing each and every game.”
