Statement from Chicago Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf

Tonight, Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson and General Manager Gar Forman spoke about the disappointment that everyone in the Bulls organization, including myself, feels about this season. They also talked about the commitment shared by all of us – John, Gar, Fred, Michael and me – to be strategic and aggressive in the steps taken to improve the team.  I want our fans to know that we are grateful for the way they stood by us during a season in which we fell far short of our expectations and that the resources needed will be made available to get this team moving in the right direction.
