Scotto: “When I look at the Bulls, Kenny Atkinson always seemed like an ideal fit there given what he did in Brooklyn building up the culture and really developing guys, which Chicago is built around. They have a ton of young guys in Wendell Carter, Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and Coby White. You’ve heard talk of assistants like Ime Udoka and Wes Unseld Jr., who worked with Arturas Karnisovas. I think he’s a sleeper. Somewhere in there, I can see Billy Donovan having interest as well because I think they’re on the rise.”

Udoka, specifically, has reportedly generated a bit of buzz down in the NBA’s Disney World bubble as it pertains to the Bulls’ opening. “I think he’s a very, very strong candidate for [the Bulls’] job,” Sports Illustrated senior NBA writer Chris Mannix, who is in the bubble, said on the latest Bulls Talk Podcast. “There’s been a lot of chatter in Orlando about Ime and the Bulls’ position because, in part, the (Marc) Eversley connection from their days in Philadelphia.”
