Thibodeau nears deal to take over Bulls

by June 05, 2010

Thibodeau’s decision to bail on the Hornets may have been based on assurances coming from Chicago: “Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf spent part of Friday at the Berto Center, where sources said positive discussions about Tom Thibodeau continued with executive vice president John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman and that a formal offer is expected shortly. Two sources familiar with the Bulls’ thinking continued to paint the situation as Thibodeau’s job to lose and that an offer is expected to come this weekend.”
