Three good targets for the Chicago Bulls to potentially pursue in the search for their next general manager could be more underrated names.

On the forefront for the Chicago Bulls and recently hired executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas right is is the search for the next general manager. Late last week, the Bulls rid themselves of former long-time general manager Gar Forman. The Bulls are also looking to reposition the role of former VP of basketball operations John Paxson. He’s likely to take on a role more similar to that of a senior advisor.

According to a report from K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago on April 15, the Bulls are still looking into interviewing three potential general manager candidates. The Bulls have permission to interview the three candidates that piece from NBC Sports Chicago reported that Karnisovas is interested in up front.

The three candidates that the Bulls have permission, and are planning on interviewing, includes Philadelphia 76ers senior vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley, Los Angeles Clippers assistant general manager Mark Hughes, and Orlando Magic assistant general manager Matt Lloyd.

But that piece from Johnson also reported that Karnisovas is looking at some other candidates beyond the three that are already mentioned here. That leaves the door open for others to still join this new-look Bulls front office regime in the most significant role that is still left open.

Here’s a look into the three under the radar general manager candidates worth considering for the Chicago Bulls in the midst of their search to replace Gar Forman.
