|Bulls GM Won't Respond to Del Negro Reports
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman says he won't discuss reports that coach Vinny Del Negro's job is in jeopardy or go into detail about internal evaluations of staff, players or coaches.
Forman made his comments Tuesday night, two days after an ESPN report said the Bulls had decided to eventually fire Del Negro, who is in his second season.
Forman said Del Negro was the Bulls coach and that everyone was disappointed with Chicago's 11-17 start. The Bulls played Indiana on Tuesday night.
Asked if the organization was behind Del Negro, Forman responded by saying the organization was behind what it was trying to accomplish and optimistic of where it is headed.
