No real news on the Bulls coaching front

From the ESPN NBA Rumors page: “The Bulls have not spoken with Lawrence Frank yet, but the team is confident they’ll get to interview him for their head coach vacancy. According to the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have received favorable feedback on the former Nets head coach. The team is in the process of finishing background checks on people they want to interview and they may meet with Thunder assistant coach Mo Cheeks, former Timberwolves executive and head coach Kevin McHale and Mavericks assistant coach Dwane Casey.”

We know Vince Carter has endorsed Frank for the job. We also know McHale has expressed interest in the job. And finally, we know that the New Orleans Hornets have interviewed Frank and talked to Casey and Boston Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau.

Finally, we know that an NBA source told the Chicago Sun-Times that Bulls general manager Gar Forman is looking for a coach with head coaching experience in both the regular season and playoffs.

But that’s about all we know.

I can’t say any of this buzz has me particularly excited. Frank’s record over his final 2.2 seasons (prior to his dismissal after this season’s 0-16 start) was 68-112. In 2007-08, his Nets went 34-48 with a combo of Jason Kidd/Devin Harris (trade), Vince Carter and Richard Jefferson. The next season, they went 34-48 again with Harris, Carter and various other spare parts (Brook Lopez, Yi Jianlian, Chris Douglas-Roberts, etc.). Sure, they didn’t have a ton of talent…but they weren’t exactly overachieving, were they?

And don’t even get me started about McHale.

If the Bulls were going to fire Vinny Del Negro, I was really hoping they were going to bring in somebody who was clearly and demonstrably better. I don’t know much about Casey, but the Mavericks haven’t fared very well in the playoffs over the past four seasons, three of which ended in first round exits.

I still like Jeff Van Gundy for the position, but his brother, Stan Van Gundy, doesn’t think that’s likely.

Well, all Bulls fans can do is continue to wait and wonder.

    In other words to make my long story sort Cleveland has money to offer LB over Chicago, NY and Miami and if he reject Cleveland and he wants to for another team, Then he has to do a sign and trade deal b-cuz of his high resume value. And it is only fair, for what Cleveland has given him throughout the years.

    Are you drunk? Really are you? You just made no sense once again and your comments get dumber every time. You have said none of that before and you still dont get all those teams have enough money to offer him a maximum salary. 19.6 million is the most any team can offer him per year. The Bulls,Nets,Clippers,Knicks and Heat can all offer him the same thing. Only Cleveland can offer him more than that. Once again your ignorant because the Bulls out of all those teams have a better team in place. So stop already because no one is going to agree with you except your made up friends who you comment under.

    DJ May 16, 2010 at 12:11 pm #

    HE DOES NOT WANT TO LEAVE THEM WITH A BAD IMPRESSION OF HIM (MEANING NO BAD BLOOD!)

  16. m_nazabal@yahoo.com'
    Max May 16, 2010 at 1:05 pm #

    You still don’t get it!!!! It’s a Business. If he leaves then there will be bad blood no matter what. That city will hate him. Your just sounding stupider and stupider every time and you think that you sound smart. For real DJ go get your GED.

    gud 1 inkybreath, this guy mike-trm3-max-another other accounts he made up (basically 1 person won’t shut the F*** up) lol. I think he was drop as a baby?

    With the fans maybe yes, but with the Cav’s department stuff not that much, if they get back players in return that they like from the Bulls like, Deng or Hinrich, Gibson, J.J, Noah and the bulls 1st round draft pick dumb shit… It a business, remember you said it yourself. And if he leave he at least has to give them that for what they have done for him in the past. It’s common sense, especially when he is their top franchise player! what part of that message do you not understand???

  19. felipeagarcia87@hotmail.com'
    Dj May 16, 2010 at 7:30 pm #

    It’s like Rose leaving and giving back the Bulls nothing in return as a free-agent. He can’t do that b-cuz no player was to been know as a dick type of player after all they have done for them. He wants everyone to be happy meaning himself and his former team.

    Sports don’t work like that you fucking Moron!!! Nobody leaves as a Free Agent and makes sure his team is ok with that. I know your gonna say KG but dipshit for the last time he was not a free agent when he got traded. The Wolves traded him in the last year of his Contract because they knew he was leaving and they wanted to get what they wanted while they were still in the drivers seat. Once again you say things that make no sense and you still have no concept of what a sign and trade is. Lebron holds all the cards. Cleveland cannot insist on anything because if they try to ask for to much Lebron will just walk. The reason he would leave is to play with the players you are saying that he would want to give to the Cavs as a parting gift. Showing your stupidity once again and dude I am only posting as myself and how you are acting is showing people that you are just as stupid as I am saying you are.

    OK? and what part of my message are you not getting that he is their franchise PLAYER like ROSE IS! SO in other words he won’t leave!

    Dj May 16, 2010 at 8:13 pm #

    I am just giving u all this B.S so u can understand through your tick head he their are to many element if he leaves.

    Max May 16, 2010 at 8:23 pm #

    That is not what the point of your messages have been. This is what you do you flip flop and try to sound smart. He is a Franchise Free Agent. If he is so loyal and cares so much about the city and only will play for them, then why even enter free agency and put the city and fans through that. Why not just sign a extension and/or not opt out in the first place? Your points again are that of ignorance and I am starting to feel sorry for your dad wasting his sperm on you.

    Anything to add to bills comment,

    Their is no bad blood between the Cav’s and him. Did u see him say F*** everyone on this team and I am leaving Cleveland? NO all he said in his interview was that he is very disappointed and he is trying to see what he did wrong to try to win a championship.
