    Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro met with chairman Jerry Reinsdorf on Sunday, but he won't be keeping his job.
    Del Negro will be fired on Tuesday, with one season and $2 million remaining on his guaranteed three-year contract, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Maybe Hornacek will get his chance now? Although, he might have burnt bridges with the Bulls after they hired Del Negro.

    This is no surprise. They said in December they were going to fire him after the season.

    Good riddance! VDN was in over his head, he lost a lot of people when they blew that game against Sacramento where they lwere up around 30 at one point and somehow managed to lose it.

    They'll hire someone that can hopefully attract a big name free agent. Doug Collins is the hot name right now, I'd be OK with that as I am a little leery about Byron Scott and Avery Johnson.

    I hope they get Avery Johnson. He's a great leader and coach.
