The Chicago Bulls named Brian Hagen as their assistant general manager on Tuesday.

Hagen spent the last nine seasons with the New Orleans Hornets, working most recently as the team's director of player personnel.

"Brian is someone I have thought for quite a while is one of the best young scouts and executives in the league," Bulls general manager Gar Forman said in a statement. "We are extremely pleased that he has decided to join the Chicago Bulls organization."

Hagen worked in a variety of roles with the Hornets, including director of basketball operations and director of scouting.
