by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bulls announced on Monday that they have fired general manager Gar Forman and he will not be involved in the Basketball Operations Department.

"It has been an honor and a privilege to work for the Chicago Bulls for more than two decades," Forman said in a press release. "There is no better ownership group in professional sports than the Reinsdorfs, and I want to thank Jerry and Michael for their support during my tenure. The Bulls organization will always hold a special place in my heart."

Jerry Reinsdorf said the following:

"Gar Forman worked tirelessly for the Chicago Bulls organization, first as a scout and then as an executive. He made many significant contributions during his time here and helped to bring some of the brightest young basketball talent to our team, from Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson to Jimmy Butler and Coby White. He has been a trusted advisor and friend to me over the years, and on behalf of everyone I want to thank him for his commitment to the organization. Gar will always be a part of our Bulls family."
