I'm just not sure why either Webster or Karnisovas would want to leave GM situations with 2 very successful teams, unless a higher title is involved

Full authority on basketball decisions seems like a higher title. Bobby imo would want to maybe get his own situation where people give him some credit. Lol

Anytime any move is made Masai gets all the credit and praise for everything.  All you hear is "I believe in Masai". How often do Raptor fans even bring him up, let alone the media.

The easiest thing to match so not really worried about that.

Creating something will be the allure - as long as the GM is truly unencumbered.   The only thing I don't like about the Bulls' situation is that both Paxson and Forman will still be there in some capacity - has the feels of another NY situation, where paranoia and undermining run rampant.

Bulls To Interview Arturas Karnisovas, Justin Zanik

APR 6, 2020 4:16 PM

[nba_chicagobulls]

The Chicago Bulls have interviews planned with Arturas Karnisovas and Justin Zanik.

Karnisovas is currently general manager of the Denver Nuggets while Zanik holds the same position with the Utah Jazz.

Zanik attended Northwestern and also has experience as a player agent.

The Bulls are increasingly less less likely to interview Bobby Webster of the Toronto Raptors or Adam Simon of the Miami Heat. Both Webster and Simon are expected to be retained by their current teams.

The Chicago Bulls are finalizing a deal with Denver Nuggets GM Arturas Karnisovas to become the franchise’s new Executive VP of Basketball Operations, sources tell ESPN. Karnisovas will be tasked with hiring a new GM and reshaping the front office.

Bulls offered the job to Karnisovas earlier this evening, and negotiated the details through the night, sources said. Karnisovas will leave Denver for Chicago after helping Tim Connelly and Josh Kroenke to rebuild the Nuggets into a Western Conference contender.

There was a really well written piece on Webster during this season where he went on about how he likes being out of the spotlight, for now at least. In time he'll want his own show, for sure, but I think we are safe for now, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was a plan in place re: Masai's eventual (seemingly inevitable) moving on to bigger and better things than sports and Bobby taking over.
