Bulls GM won’t respond to Del Negro reports

Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman says he won’t discuss

reports that coach Vinny Del Negro’s job is in jeopardy or go into

detail about internal evaluations of staff, players or coaches.

Forman made his comments Tuesday night, two days after an ESPN

report said the Bulls had decided to eventually fire Del Negro, who

is in his second season.

Forman said Del Negro was the Bulls coach and that everyone was

disappointed with Chicago’s 11-17 start. The Bulls played Indiana

on Tuesday night.

Asked if the organization was behind Del Negro, Forman responded

by saying the organization was behind what it was trying to

accomplish and optimistic of where it is headed.
