Bulls Reportedly Have Another Mystery Front Office Hire Coming Soon (UPDATE: Denver Exec Pat Connelly?)

Chicago Bulls

KEEP IT COMING!

Earlier today, The Athletic’s Sham Charania reported that the Chicago Bulls hired JJ Polk as an assistant general manager, marking the first move for Arturas Karnisovas as the organization’s new front office leader.

Now, according to the Sun-Tims Joe Cowley, we’re learning that the Bulls could be on the verge of a second hire today:

We have yet to hear of any potential candidates for the Bulls GM vacancy (yet), so I’d be a bit surprised if that’s the position referred to above. However, literally anything is fair game right now – there’s even less transparency than usual with less media access – so you just never know.

In any case, all that matters right now is that the Bulls are actually making quick moves! We’ll update this post with any new information that comes out about this mystery hire, so stick with us.

UPDATE: ESPN;s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets a new name has entered the fray:

Pat Connelly, listed on the Nuggets website as Director of Pro Personnel,  is reportedly in talks to join the Bulls’ front office. And for what it’s worth, Connelly has previous experience as an assistant general manager with the Phoenix Suns from 2013-18 and held the title of Director of Player Personnel for the Washington Wizards from 2006-13. This could be the first guy ripped from Karnisovas’ old team.
