Eversley, the senior vice president of player staff for the Philadelphia 76ers, agreed on Sunday evening to join the new executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas with Chicago, sources said.
Eversley, originally from Canada, is the first black GM in the history of the Bulls.
Eversley will work with Karnisovas to redesign one of the historic NBA franchises. Karnisovas has hired Eversley, GM assistant J.J. Polk and vice president of player personnel Pat Connelly since joining the Denver Nuggets earlier this month.
Eversley has climbed through front office roles with the Sixers, Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors. He also spent a decade working at Nike.
Bulls president Michael Reinsdorf completed a redesign of the Bulls’ front office, which included the departure of longtime leaders John Paxson and Gar Forman. Paxson remains in a consultative role, but Karnisovas and Eversley are now at the center of organizational management.
