Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman finished fourth in the voting for 2012 NBA Executive of the Year.

Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman finished fourth in the voting for 2012 NBA Executive of the Year, as the team announced on Wednesday. This year's winner is Indiana's Larry Bird, who helped to build the team that's currently giving the Miami Heat a run for their money in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Bird finished the voting with 88 points and 12 first-place votes. San Antonio's R.C. Buford was second with 56 points and eight first-place votes while the Los Angeles Clippers' Neil Olshey finished third with 55 points and six first-place votes.

Forman didn't make any major moves with the Bulls this season, mostly choosing to keep his veteran-laden team intact. The acquisition of shooting guard Richard Hamilton, plus the drafting of European prospect Nikola Mirotic last year, could be considered two of his substantial moves.
