Arturas Karnisovas Rumors
The Czech star also admitted that he left Chicago with a bittersweet feeling, saying that he didn’t get a farewell he expected from the Bulls general manager Arturas Karnisovas. “It was tense. You’re in the city for two years, you fight for them, you live for the team – and then you receive a text from general manager Karnisovas which says, “Thanks for your time in Chicago,” Satoransky told. “That was the only thing I got from him. But I’m not angry; you can’t be emotional at that moment. But when one thinks about it… after two years of hard work, it’s actually brutal,” he added.
