Report: C's Assistant Tom Thibodeau Rejects Hornets, Wants Bulls Job

The New Orleans Hornets asked Tom Thibodeau to let them know by Thursday whether he would accept their head-coaching position. Now, Fred Kerber and Peter Vescey of the New York Post report Thibodeau has turned the Hornets down, and has his eyes on Chicago's coaching vacancy instead:

The Post has learned Thibodeau yesterday rejected a Hornets offer that has been on the table for almost a week.

Sources also said Thibodeau, credited as Boston's defensive mastermind, is almost guaranteed to wind up with the Bulls, whom he met with two summers ago but lost out to Vinny Del Negro.

It appears as though Thibodeau's time on Boston's bench will end as soon as the NBA Finals does.
