There is growing momentum that the Chicago Bulls will retain Jim Boylen as head coach for the 20-21 season due to financial concerns from the Reinsdorfs, sources tell Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley had previously begun to reach out through back channels to potential candidates such as Ime Udoka and Adrian Griffin. Karnisovas and Eversley received some negative feedback on Boylen from key Bulls players.

The Bulls are valued at $3.2 billion and Boylen is owed just $1.6 million as one of the NBA's lowest paid head coaches.

A sources says Boylen is confident he will retain his job and he believes he will also prove that he's the right coach for the Bulls.
