The Chicago Bulls have hired Marc Eversley as their new General Manager. He replaces Gar Forman, who was previously fired by the team.
He was fired shortly after Artūras Karnišovas was named the Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations. Eversley is the first African-American GM in Bulls history.
Eversley comes to the Bulls after being employed by the Philadelphia 76ers. When he was employed by the 76ers, he was their Senior Vice President of Player Personnel.
Besides working for the 76ers, Eversley has also worked for the Washington Wizards and the Toronto Raptors in their front office. He has also spent time at Nike.
Karnišovas, Eversley, and Assistant GM’s J.J. Polk and Pat Connelly will now try to reshape the Bulls front office and team in their own vision. These three men will be responsible for making the roster moves to try to avoid a three-year playoff skid.
Chicago was on its way of missing the playoff before the global coronavirus pandemic shut down the sports world. The NBA has been on a hiatus since March 11th when Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the infectious virus.
As the standings presently sit with there being no announcement on when or if the NBA season will resume, the Bulls presently have the 11th-best record in the Eastern Conference. Only the Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks, Detroit Pistons, and the New York Knicks have worse records than the Bulls.
Chicago has a 22-43 record. Fifteen of their wins have come within the Eastern Conference, as they have gone 15-28. The team went 14-20 at home with an 8-23 record on the road.
