Tom Thibodeau has options if the Bulls decide to cut ties

Beat writers are already talking about Tom Thibodeau and the Bulls in the past tense, but what will Thibodeau do if the team decides to go a different direction?

If the Bulls fire Thibodeau, and he doesn’t think the coaching market is strong enough, he can sit out a season and wait for the job of his choice to be available.

K.C. Johnson suggests the Lakers, which might be open if Byron Scott can’t improve his 21-61 record.

Others think Thibodeau has so much love for the game that he couldn’t stay away from basketball and will take any available job.

There might be teams who will have a coaching vacancy if the Bulls decide to part ways with Thibodeau, because he is considered one of the best coaches in the NBA.
