    Post Report: Chicago Bulls working on an extension for Gar Forman


    The Chicago Bulls are right smack dab in the middle of a full rebuild after trading away superstar Jimmy Butler during the 2017 NBA Draft.Life has been rough for the organization the last 5 years or so. After Derrick Rose tore ligaments in his knee, he was never the same and the Bulls fell from the top of the Eastern Conference to the bottom where they currently sit.Instead of trying to get younger during the 2016 offseason, Gar Forman and John Paxson decided to bring in veterans Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade as a band-aid.It didn't work.Frustrations toward this regime of Paxson and Forman have grown from fans and it's really no secret. And now on Tuesday, news broke from 670 The Score's Bernstein and Goff Show that the team is working on an extension for the General Manager Forman.Here's what they tweeted out on Tuesday afternoon:https://twitter.com/Bernstein_Goff/s...280489990Click the tweet and see the reactions for yourself. Hint: It's not good.For a team that went from the top seed in the 2010 Eastern Conference Playoffs to flat rock bottom this year, it's mind-boggling that this regime is given another chance, yet, be considered for an extension.If Chicago's young talent in Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen don't show much promise this season, then things will get even worse in the organization.I think it's a little too early to be thinking about an extension for either Paxson or Forman.

    Jerry Reinsdorf is too loyal to his gm's. He kept Krause longer than he should and now gar and pax have an effective lifetime contract.

    It was hinted at on B&G that this could be a golden parachute.

    I'm going to get this wrong but caller said the Bulls are "a family business run by the creepy nephews who you can't fire"

    I guess we should have expected this from the terrible owner of the Bulls. The guy is an awful team owner who makes bad personnel decisions.

    Why? his last good move was drafting Jimmy Butler.

    Since then he has made terrible draft choices, terrible trades, and has been at the center of all the conflicts.

    an extension for Gar is the best way to keep Paxson miserable.

    Since Jimmy Butler, our 10 highest drafted players listed below, obviously this listing screams for resigning the mastermind and architect behind this treasure trove:

    2016 1 14 Denzel Valentine
    2016 2 48 Paul Zipser
    2015 1 22 Bobby Portis
    2014 1 16 Jusuf Nurkić
    2014 1 19 Gary Harris
    2014 2 49 Cameron Bairstow
    2013 1 20 Tony Snell
    2013 2 49 Erik Murphy

    They traded Nurkic and Harris for McDermott. Ironically, the best picks Gar made since Buckets were the ones he gave away.

    Don't absolve Paxson of any responsibility for this shit show.

    In other news, my not caring at all about this franchise for the umpteenth year is working on an extension as well.

    We are looking at a rebuild, a 3-year rebuild most likely. The bigger problem is that we are a few years away form even beginning that rebuild and the 3-year clock, there will be no steps forward as long as Gar-Pax remain and i don't see them leaving any time soon.

    This franchise is going to bottom-out over the next 3-5 years, get ready for a whole lot of stink, not that many or any of us will still care.

    GarPax at this point has to be noted as one of the worst FO's in the league. There's no real hope for this franchise until a new regime comes in. Sucks, but we're not the only franchise in that situation. Really...much of the East is in this predicament.

    He signed Jannero Pargo to an assistant coach role with the WC Bulls.

    This gets better and better. Now if they keep up with these dumb moves, then I'm guessing Robin Lopez will eventually get traded for Kyle Singler.

    Just keep hiring their buddies within their inner circle and keeping everything in-house.

    That's OK when keeping it in-house is working.

    If they sign him to an extension, this team is going to be trash for a decade.

    Us fans lucked out when Rose fell in their laps.
