Avery Johnson said today he is interested in the Bulls' head coaching job and plans to talk to John Paxson today.http://www.suntimes.com/sports/966966,avery052308.article
Johnson, who was fired from the Dallas Mavericks after they were eliminated from the playoffs, was on the "Waddle and Silvy Show" on WMVP-AM (1000) and said he's not interested in taking next season off if things work out with the Bulls, who have the No. 1 pick in the June 26 draft.
He also told WMVP-AM (1000) that in a "perfect world," if he's going to be the Bulls coach, he'd like to be in that position before the draft.
I was all for giving Avery a shot at first. But this little "I'll talk to them only when they get the #1 pick" song and dance discourages me a little. I say talk to him, you've got nothing to lose, but I've since let the "let's get Avery" boat pass by.
