Head Coach Tom Thibodeau joined his team’s Summer League squad in Las Vegas on Wednesday and must have been happy with the results he saw on the court, as the Bulls easily defeated the Los Angeles Clippers, 79-50.

It appears the Bulls coaching search is about to come to a conclusion.
The Bulls, insiders confirmed, officially tendered a three-year contract offer late Friday night to Boston Celtics associate head coach Tom Thibodeau to be the team’s head coach.
