A Look at the Chicago Bulls 2009……….Gar Forman

Gar Forman came to the Chicago Bulls in 1998 along with former coach Tim Floyd. Forman came to the Bulls because of Tim Floyd. He was an assistant coach under Floyd at Iowa State and Floyd wanted Forman by his side. Paxson liked Forman and he outlasted Floyd and is now the General Manager. Forman has spent the last 11 years in the organization now. For the last few years from 2004 to 2009 he served as director of player personnel. He will be working with Paxson, but handling day to day functions.

Forman was the General Manager to start this past off-season. So the moves the Bulls had made were officially done under his watch. This past draft was his first big moves for the Bulls in drafting James Johnson and Taj Gibson. We will see how his first two draft picks will play out. Forman has been in the Bulls organization for 11 years so he knew Jannero Pargo who he has brought back for his second stint with the Bulls. I am not a fan of Lindsey Hunter who he re-signed. It is early so we will see how Forman does as General Manager of the Chicago Bulls. He will be working closely with John Paxson who is his boss as VP of Basketball Operations. Thus, Paxson would probably have to sign off on any big moves.
