2019-2020 Official NBA Thread in A and J's Olde Tyme Sports Pub Posted April 9 · Report reply 2 minutes ago, Chisoxfn said: Paxson might stick around as a senior adviser and I don't think that is a bad thing. Pax has made is very clear this isn't his show and Karnisovas is going to get the reigns to hire his guys. If he wants to pick Paxson's brain, Pax is there for him. If he doesn't...no biggie. Pax is so loyal to Jerry he would never do anything to intentionally undermine him (I genuinely believe that). Gar on the other hand has already been demoted massively. Cowley has been spot and ahead of everything on the Bulls and that point has been clear for a long time. Karni has 10 times the power Gar has (if not more). If Karni doesn't like Gar after he meets with him, I'm sure he will be out. These are pretty sweeping changes Bulls are making. New VP, New GM, likely a new Asst. GM...new scouts...probably new coaching...and one can only hope new medical team and further buildout of its analytics team. Your points are taken, but what other franchises do things like this? Hire a new guy to take over, don’t fire the previous regime, and let the new guy decide what happens? It just seems like a very strange way of running a team.
