Bulls Find New GM

 

The Chicago Bulls have hired Philadelphia 76ers executive Marc Eversley to replace the fired Gar Forman as general manager and work under new top basketball executive Arturas Karnisovas.

A person familiar with the situation told the AP about the deal on condition of anonymity because the move hadn’t been announced.

ESPN first reported the hiring. Eversley, a Canadian, becomes the Bulls’ first black general manager after four years in Philadelphia’s front office — the past two as senior vice president of player personnel.
