Gar Forman promoted to Bulls GM

May 20, 2009 (CHICAGO) The Bulls announced the move Wednesday in a release promoting a Thursday news conference.

Forman has been director of player personnel the past five years.

Paxson had served as GM since April 2003, when he was officially hired as executive vice president of basketball operations.

Forman joined the organization as a scout in 1998 and became the team's director of player personnel in January 2004.

The move comes after a season in which the Boston Celtics eliminated the Bulls from the playoffs in seven games.
