The PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER’s Marc Narducci reports today that “An NBA source said yesterday that Sixers executive vice president Larry Brown has drawn interest as a candidate for the Chicago Bulls’ head coaching job.”
Jim Boylan is the current coach of the Bulls, who haven’t played much better since Scott Skiles was summoned out of the Stadium on Christmas Eve. The speculation is that Brown, who hasn’t coached since he led the Knicks to a painful 23-59 finish in the 2005-06 season, doesn’t want his career to end on such a low ebb.
Chicago GM John Paxson was really starting to show us something for awhile. But then he forked over $50M+ (gag!) for Ben Wallace and traded the most improved player in the league this year, Tyson Chandler, for a worn-out plow horse in P.J. Brown.
And now he’s considering the wrong Brown retread. Personally, we’d go with Hubie. At least you’d get some entertainment value for your buck.
