Mike Bell asked Chris who exactly is making all of these decisions since Danny Ferry is still “out”. Chris responded that “There is still a basketball ops department with assitant GM’s and scouting people talking to agents and then they all get into a room with Coach Bud, and I understand it can get heated, but the decision ultimately falls to Coach Bud. That’s the position he’s in without a GM right now.”
