A few big-named assistants added to the coaching staff, another contract extension done behind closed doors for general manager Marc Eversley, and some changes to the training room. Window dressing at its finest for the Bulls so far this offseason. But in a few weeks, things finally start to get real. That’s when executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas and Eversley will have to go into an underwhelming draft class and try to pull out a gem. They’re out there, and that’s why this class is so difficult to evaluate. A team can land on the best player at No. 14, while ..read more

Sun-Times' Sports Saturday edition switching to Sunday

It began with an epic argument between Cubs catcher Randy Hundley and umpire Satch Davidson, who’d ruled a Mets runner safe at home plate. “I oughta bite your head off!” Hundley wailed. “If you do,” Davidson shot back, “you’ll have more brains in your stomach than you have in your head!” That was the opening anecdote — in a cover feature on the rise and fall of the 1969 Cubs — in the debut issue of the Sun-Times’ “Sports Saturday” edition, on April 6, 2019. Since then, there have been 271 more “Sports Saturday” sections, each one wrapping around the rest of the paper — news, TV listings, comic ..read more

UConn's Danny Hurley could be one of the last college coaches to turn down an NBA job
Chicago Sun Times » Bulls
by Steve Greenberg

There’s a long, illustrious history of superstar college coaches rebuffing major interest from professional teams but only after using it to squeeze bigger, better contracts out of their universities. Former Florida football coach Steve Spurrier was a master in this area. Back when he had the Gators rolling in the 1990s, he hemmed and hawed so hilariously effectively when asked by media about the NFL that his alma mater first made him the college game’s only $1 million-a-year man and later made him its first $2 million-a-year man. Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops, Alabama’s Nick Saban and Notre Dame’s Br ..read more

Hall of Famer and former Bulls forward Chet Walker, known as ‘‘The Jet’’ for his speed, died at 84, the NBA said Saturday. The Bulls inducted Walker, a seven-time NBA All-Star, into their new Ring of Honor in January. They acquired Walker from the 76ers in 1969, and he became an integral part of those early Bulls team with forward Bob Love and guards Jerry Sloan and Norm Van Lier. “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Chet Walker, a legendary figure in our team’s history,” the Bulls said in a statement. “An inductee of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, Chet left an indelible mark on th ..read more

Three ways Chicago Sports Network could take shape in October

We knew the White Sox, Bulls and Blackhawks were leaving NBC Sports Chicago to launch their own network in October. Now we know the name of the network, the Chicago Sports Network, which was revealed Monday. But the network’s long-awaited announcement of its existence didn’t fill in many blanks. The first game on CHSN (get used to that abbreviation) likely will be a Hawks preseason game. The NHL’s preseason begins in September, and it has yet to be determined where Hawks game that month will air. Bulls preseason games will follow in October, and the Sox will debut next year, likely in spring t ..read more

The Chicago Sports Network will be the new TV home for the White Sox, Bulls and Blackhawks when it launches in October, the regional sports network announced Monday. CHSN will replace NBC Sports Chicago, which has been the teams’ home since Oct. 1, 2004, when it launched as Comcast SportsNet. NBCSCH’s deal with the teams expires Oct. 1. The question sure to be on everyone’s mind: Will we be able to see it? It would seem easy for CHSN to replace NBCSCH in viewers’ channel guides, but it’s not that simple. Though the network said it will launch with agreements with cable, streaming and over-the ..read more

Bears' Ryan Poles wins the vote — going away — as Chicago's favorite roster architect

KWith all due respect to Bears general manager Ryan Poles, his reputation among Chicago sports fans has soared in part because of how low certain other pro teams have sunk. Making a handful of popular moves and seeming to have the Bears on the uptick have practically made Poles a unicorn. In this week’s “Polling Place,” your home for Sun-Times sports polls on the social platform X, we asked which team’s roster architect you trust the most. The Cubs’? The Blackhawks'? The Bulls'? No, it was Poles by a mile. “He appears to have an idea what the team needs to win,” @jaangry commented. “He has don ..read more

Bronny James is keeping his name in the NBA draft, with the hopes of joining his father in the league next season. "He's a really good prospect who has a lot of room for growth," Rich Paul, the CEO of Klutch Sports Group, told ESPN, which first reported the decision. Paul later confirmed the decision to The Associated Press. LeBron James, Bronny's father and the NBA's all-time scoring leader, posted his reaction on his social media accounts, including one Instagram story that had the simple caption: "BRONNY STAYING IN DRAFT!" The decision was not unexpected, given that Bronny James had given n ..read more

Bulls VP Arturas Karnisovas already has begun looking for answers in the first month of the offseason. It’s the mission he spoke about in April, when he addressed the media one last time as the final chapter of the Bulls’ 2023-24 season was ending. “The way I approach it is I am going to look at the totality of the group,” Karnisovas said then. “This group hasn’t worked. “There’s a lot of great things in certain individual players and a lot of young guys who took a step forward, and it’s positive, but in totality as a group, it didn’t work. So I’m going to have to find these answers in the off ..read more
