Bulls executives tout future flexibility and need for player development

Bulls executives tout future flexibility and need for player development

There were no changes made in anyones job status during the Bulls post-playoff news conference, and no changes to managements plan to remain competitive while developing young players.

Those are difficult dual goals to meet, which is a big reason why the Bulls finished 41-41 last season.

"From ownership down, we're committed to working through the issues that we face," executive vice president John Paxson said while sitting alongside general manager Gar Forman. "(Chairman Jerry and President Michael Reinsdorf) continue to give us resources. Gar and I are committed to reshaping the roster in a disciplined fashion. We remain focused on both the long term and the short term."

The short term centers mainly on "The 3 Alphas," Rajon Rondo's colorful nickname for himself, Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler when Rondo signed a two-year deal with a team option last summer. Paxson said "there's a very good chance" Rondo's $13.4 million option will be picked up, while management has to prepare for Wade using his player option of $23.8 million for next season.
