We've not been able to win with [Anthony] on the court at this time. I think the direction with our team is that he's a player that would be better off somewhere else and using his talent somewhere where he can win or chase that championship.feedback

I think that one of the things that I like about this job is that [General Manager Steve] Mills does a lot of the paperwork – the back and forth with the NBA headquarters – and my issues is about talking to coaches, finding out the game plan. I took some time on the West Coast during the holidays when I think things really kind of fell down. We lost six in a row there which changed us from being a positive to a minus. So I think I've got to do a little bit more on scene, on-target mentoring.feedback

The news of Jerry Krause's death is a sad day for the Chicago Bulls and the entire NBA community. He was a man determined to create a winning team in Chicago – his hometown.

We're just going to let the process work itself out. We're not concerned. We understand this is a serious subject we're talking about, but this has to be done outside of our control. It's something we can't control. So Derrick has expressed that he's not concerned about it. I mean he's quite aware of it, but it's not keeping him up at night, so we'll leave it at that.feedback

Sep 23 2016

These are things that are important to me.feedback
