Bulls Apparent Frontrunner For Tom Thibodeau

Reports are out that members of the Bulls have flown to L.A. to interview Tom Thibodeau for the Bulls' head-coaching gig. K.C. Johnson of Chicago Breaking Sports writes,

On the eve of the NBA Finals, league sources said Bulls management flew to Los Angeles to interview Celtics associate head coach Tom Thibodeau for their head-coaching vacancy late Wednesday. 

The meeting hadn't taken place as of nearly 10 p.m. Chicago time Wednesday, but sources said both general manager Gar Forman and senior vice president John Paxson were in Los Angeles. 

Thibodeau is a highly regarded assistant coach with the Celtics, and having him helm the Bulls would likely spell good news for the team, with or without LeBron James.
