As the Chicago Bulls try to return to contention, they're close to hiring a new executive vice president of basketball operations to run the show. ESPN NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported today that the Bulls are focusing on Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas.

News that the Bulls have narrowed their search didn't stop Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie from offering his thoughts on the situation via social media on Wednesday. Dinwiddie, who was traded to Chicago in 2016 but sent down to the G League after training camp and later waived, suggested he could return to the franchise to become the first player/GM.

He joked about trading himself for current Bulls guard Tomas Satoransky, and then immediately appointing himself the general manager.

His second order of business was reaching out to agent Rich Paul to deliver Chicago native Anthony Davis, saying he'd even sign with Paul's agency, Klutch Sports, to make the deal happen.

Dinwiddie praised a backcourt pairing of himself and Bulls point guard Zach LaVine, as well as Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen alongside Davis. He also promised to give the fans want they want with the players off the bench, including rookie Coby White.

Dinwiddie then mentioned adding Terrence Ross or Marcus Morris, as well as Moe Harkless and Robert Covington, as possible options to round out the roster.

The Nets guard said he would call in a favor from Detroit Mercy star Rashad Phillips, seeking advice "on the best mid sized 3/D wing type that can also guard PGs." He also suggested trading Bulls forward Otto Porter Jr. for Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond.

He made one thing abundantly clear: He'd build his young team around Davis, and let him call the shots. With an average age of 26, Dinwiddie gave his team a five-year window.

Though Dinwiddie said sharing his thoughts on front office moves was "fun," don't expect him to make the transition to coaching anytime soon. Before the NBA hiatus, he was averaging a career-best 20.6 points, 6.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds.
