UPDATED: Bulls fly to L.A. to interview Thibodeau

[UPDATE by your friendly BullsBlogger, 06/03/10 10:09 AM CDT: The NY Post (as in, Vescey) is reporting that Thibodeau has turned down the Hornets job, and the Bulls are the frontrunners. Chris Mannix of SI (via PBT) reports that the Nets are actually the top choice ]

[From the FanPosts (you all are fast). Good to see the Bulls 'due diligence' actually in action. He's not my top choice, but what I can't settle for is missing out because they waited too long, and reports are the Hornets are expecting an answer very soon. Hopefully the interview goes well enough for him to wait: the more options, the better. -ed.]

KC reports:

On the eve of the NBA Finals, league sources said Bulls management flew to Los Angeles to interview Celtics associate head coach Tom Thibodeau for their head coaching vacancy late Wednesday.

The meeting hadn't taken place as of nearly 10 p.m. Chicago time Wednesday, but sources said both general manager Gar Forman and senior vice president John Paxson were in Los Angeles.

The Bulls' interview would suggest credence to multiple media outlets, including the Tribune, reporting the vacancy represents Thibodeau's first choice. It's unclear where Thibodeau stands on the Hornets' offer and whether or not he asked for an extension on his decision.

The Bulls had discussed the opening informally with Thibodeau previously, but by some accounts, Wednesday would mark the first formal interview in the nearly month-old search to replace Vinny Del Negro.
