(Tim Kawakami) Q: So do you think you’ll be running the Triangle with this team? Maybe this personnel isn’t best suited for that? Will you run a different offense than the Triangle?
(Steve) KERR: It will be influenced by the Triangle but it will not look like the Bulls of the ’90s, I can tell you that.
The game has changed and I think my philosophy would reflect that. For instance, I would be crazy to do away with screen and roll with Steph—he’s devastating in it. We’ll do plenty of that.
But we have the opportunity to make some strides offensively and I think that will be reflected in my influences—which have been Popovich and Phil and Lenny Wilkens…
They’ve all been coaches who emphasized ball movement, spacing and flow and having a a system to rely on and that’s what i’m looking to give.

Bobby Portis Apologizes to Bulls for Mirotic Fight
Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
