The Chicago Bulls just recently hired Marc Eversley as the team's new general manager, which was preceded by their decision to appoint Arturas Karnisovas as their new executive vice president of basketball operations.

Bulls star guard Zach LaVine has given his thoughts on these recent developments, and according to the 25-year-old, he is very much looking forward to what the revamped front office will do to help revive a meddling Chicago franchise. He also revealed he has talked to both men:

“Yeah, I’ve talked to them both and I’m extremely excited to get to working with them,” LaVine said, via Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype. “It’s something that I think we needed – a switch-up so that the Bulls fans can see that we’re looking in the right direction and getting better.”

Being the true professional that he is, LaVine did not forget to show his gratitude to the recently displaced members of Chicago's hierarchy:

“Obviously, we all love the work that Gar [Forman] and Pax (John Paxson) have done for us and the city of Chicago,” added LaVine. “I think the fans sometimes give them a hard time because they want the results here and now, but it’s hard to do that in sports. It really is. They had a really good run at it, and they’re still beloved. Obviously, I’m just excited to get this started and get right into it.”

Bulls fans would probably disagree with LaVine's on Paxson and Forman, but he's being a good soldier here. The Bulls have been struggling over the past few years, so it's safe to say that it was due time for a major shakeup. The good news for Chicago is there's nowhere to go but up for this once-great franchise.
