Sixers' Marc Eversley given permission to interview for Bulls GM job


The Chicago Bulls have been granted permission to interview Sixers senior vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley for their general manager position, sources tell NBC Sports Chicago’s K.C. Johnson

On Monday, the Bulls officially announced the hiring of executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas, as well as the dismissal of longtime GM Gar Forman. 

Karnisovas has also been given permission to interview Clippers assistant GM Mark Hughes and Magic assistant GM Matt Lloyd. 

Eversley was hired in May of 2016 by then-Sixers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo. He also has experience working with Colangelo on the Toronto Raptors and served as the Wizards’ vice president of scouting from 2013 to 2016. With the Sixers, Eversley has been one of the figures involved in the pre-draft process. GM Elton Brand, executive vice president of basketball operations Alex Rucker, assistant GM Ned Cohen and Eversley are leaders in the Sixers’ basketball operations department. 

The Sixers gave Eversley permission to interview for the Hornets’ GM job in 2018, which ultimately went to Mitch Kupchak. 

The former GM of the Nuggets, Karnisovas told Johnson he has a clear idea of what he’s looking for in a GM.

“Most of the guys on the list I know personally and I’ve known them for a long time, from scouting games and going to dinners and interaction,” he said. “It’s going to be easier for me. I know exactly the criteria I’m looking for. It’s going to be complementary to me and my skill set. I don’t want clones. I want somebody who is going to bring something different to our organization. Those are things I pay attention to.”
