Seems like the Cavs and the Bulls are in play, and the Knicks are just an afterthought.
And how else does one read the tea leaves? It’s all very suspicious, as Woj points out: The Bulls urgently travel to LA to meet with Thibs who couldn’t get a head coaching job until he signed with Wes’s agency, CAA, which also represents LeBron. Woj adds that for all his years as an assistant, nobody considered Thibs for a head coaching job, not even the Celtics teams who built at least one title on the back of his defensive schemes. But Thibs signs with CAA and the Bulls’ owner flies halfway across the country to snatch him away from the Hornets at the last minute.
Now LeBron is “leaning hard” to the Bulls, who have a made a “down payment” on the summer’s top prize. Donnie Walsh has until the draft, which according to Woj is when all free agent decisions might unofficially be made, to make his own bold move and change some minds.
