One member of the Philadelphia 76ers’ front office has become a candidate for a front office position with the Chicago Bulls.
It seems that the Chicago Bulls must like some of the things that the Philadelphia 76ers have done for the past couple of seasons. They have had an interest in one former and one current member of the Sixers organization as they are restructuring their own front office.
They were interested in Bryan Colangelo to lead their front office, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Colangelo’s most recent NBA job was with the 76ers as the president of basketball operations where he saw mixed success but ultimately parted ways with the franchise over a twitter scandal involving his wife.
Good thing for the Bulls that they decided to make the Denver Nuggets’ general manager (GM) Arturas Karnisovas their new leader with the title executive vice president of basketball operations, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Karnisovas still has the task of constructing the rest of his front office.

According to Wojnarowski, Marc Eversley, who’s currently Philly’s vice president of player personal, is a candidate for the Bulls GM position. Eversley has been with the 76ers since 2016 when Colangelo brought him onto his staff.
He was a candidate before Elton Brand took the lead of the front office after Colangelo’s departure. Prior to him joining the Sixers, Eversley’s held front office positions with Toronto Raptors and Washington Wizards.
In the past, I wrote about how he’d be the ideal candidate to take over the front office for Philly when there was a vacancy. With that in mind and based on his prior experiences, he would be a solid option for the Bulls if they were to go that route. However, it should also be noted that he’s not the only candidate for their GM role, so it’s not guaranteed that he gets the job at this point.
As of now, there’s a chance that the Philadelphia 76ers could lose a key member of their front office to the Bulls.
