[UPDATE (9/8): Griffin 'on verge' of being hired?] McGraw: Bulls 'closer' to hiring new assistant

[Note by your friendly BullsBlogger, 09/08/10 8:33 AM CDT: Via fanshot (via ChicagoNow) , Gery Woelfel out of Milwaukee is reporting as if Griffin is already hired. More when it's official, but my first instinct is that he's a fine 'player-coach' addition but Thibodeau could probably use a higher caliber lead assistant in addition. Plus all the '06-'07 nonsense with Griffin makes me think he's the Org. spy. Someone ask Noah what he thinks of this.]

Mentions the candidates we know, Porter and Musselman, though this is interesting:

with the Bulls moving Pete Myers off the bench, this hire is clearly targeting a former NBA player and Musselman does not qualify.

McGraw also throws in former Bulls A-drain Griffin, maybe because of that 'need' for a former player. Right now the lead assistants include pretty much just Ron Adams. I don't see why Musselman couldn't be hired AND a former player brought on-board as well.

Sidney Green is mentioned as possibly returning as big man coach.
