Chicago Bulls president Michael Reinsdorf is researching candidates to take over the team’s basketball operations, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The current front office structure involving John Paxson-Gar Forman is unlikely to continue following this season, adds Wojnarowski.

Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that the Bulls are looking for a general manager “with a louder voice,” and that conversations have been through back channels without any formal interviews.  

The goal is for Paxson to be given a different title within the organization, with Forman moving to the team’s scouting department.
