D'Antoni Reportedly Wants Bulls Job

WOW .... guess in a unofficial way Mike is done in Phoenix and now expressing interest in Chicago.

It is unknown whether Paxson will hire D'Antoni, who still has two years and $8.5 million remaining on his Suns deal.

Paxson and director of player personnel Gar Forman interviewed Nuggets' assistant Mike Dunlap on Saturday in Denver, then when it was revealed that Steve Kerr had taken a step back from initially denying D'Antoni to talk with other teams, Paxson moved on to Phoenix.

While Paxson did not comment, the report suggests that he did enjoy his meeting with D'Antoni.

Paxson still wants to interview former Mavericks coach Avery Johnson before making a decision.
