D'Antoni To The Bulls?

An ESPN.com report said that Mike D'Antoni is close to a deal with the Chicago Bulls. However, a Phoenix Radio Station reported that the Suns Coach is closer to a deal with The New York Knicks citing money issues with the Bulls. Jerry Reinsford said that the next head coach has to adhere with the team's defensive philosophy. That might be a problem because Mike D'Antoni is an offensive minded coach.

Mike D'Antoni has had a winning record the past 4 1/2 seasons with the Suns. But a late season clash of philosophy with General Manager Steve Kerr has caused friction in Phoenix. Now, the Suns are allowing D'Antoni to speak with other teams and walk away from his contract. This is a ploy of cheapskate owner Robert Sarver not to pay D'Antoni his remaining $8.5 million. If he fired D'Antoni, he has to pay him the remaining amount in his contract.

A Bulls source said that no offer has been made to D'Antoni, so we'll just have to wait for about another week to see what happens. The Suns wants this coaching issue resolved by next week.
