Report: Chicago Bulls Interested in Miami Heat Executive for High-Level Job

Pat Riley and Adam Simon

The Chicago Bulls have begun their search for an executive that will have “full authority” on basketball decisions, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Someone they have reportedly registered interest in is Adam Simon, the current vice president of basketball operations for the Miami Heat. Simon is also the Heat’s assistant general manager.

Simon is in his 25th year with the team, having started in 1995 as an intern under current Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra.

He has served in many capacities with the team and has spent some time working for the Heat’s G League affiliate Sioux Falls Skyforce as an assistant general manager.

The Heat’s official website lists Simon as having an important role in the drafting of Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo as well as the acquisitions of Derrick Jones Jr., Duncan Robinson, and Kendrick Nunn.

It’s clear that Simon is an important part of the Heat organization and only time will tell if the team is able to hold onto him.
