With the Chicago Bulls eliminated from the playoffs, the future of Tom Thibodeau becomes a pressing question for several franchises.
Thibodeau is widely expected to not return as head coach of the Bulls.
The Orlando Magic are interested in Thibodeau and sources say there is mutual interest with the New Orleans Pelicans.
Thibodeau has two seasons and $9 million remaining on his contract with the Bulls.
When asked after the game if he expects to remain with the Bulls, Thibodeau sounded unwilling to step down.
"Until they tell me I'm not, I expect to be here," said Thibodeau.
Derrick Rose said he would like Thibodeau to return.
As one source close to the situation puts it: "Thibs is gone. They know it and he knows it."
