Person still in running for Bulls job

Kings assistant Chuck Person made his name as a player by mastering the long shot. If he lands the Chicago head coaching position, he'll be doing the same thing as a coach.

According to a source close to the Kings, the job is not yet Doug Collins' for the taking and the "The Rifleman" will interview with Bulls general manager John Paxson for a second time this week. In recent days, numerous reports had the job going to Collins, the former Bulls coach and TNT commentator who had said publicly an offer had not been made. Paxson, as it appears, isn't done deliberating.

Yet even if Collins lands the job, Person could be on a path to join the Bulls as a lead assistant and eventual successor. According to the Arlington Heights Daily Herald, Utah assistant Tyrone Corbin may be receiving a second interview as well.

Person, who has one year left on his contract with the Kings, interviewed with Paxson for the first time on May 23. He was also believed to be considered for the New York head coaching job before the Knicks hired Mike D'Antoni. Last summer, the former Indiana assistant interviewed for the Pacers head job before coming to Sacramento with Kings coach Reggie Theus.
