Chicago’s new GM has a plan, and that plan centers around making BG a permanent fixture in Black&Red: “Sitting next to John Paxson, who will remain the team’s executive vice president of basketball operations, Forman expressed excitement about the team’s young core and vowed to form a tight bond with players and coaches. Forman also addressed possibly the biggest story of the Bulls’ offseason–the future of unrestricted free agent guard Ben Gordon. ‘We like Ben,’ Forman said. ‘He’s our kind of guy. He’s got great makeup and character, a great work ethic. Our goal is to re-sign Ben Gordon. In the conversations we’ve had, I think Ben wants to stay here in Chicago.'”
