The Chicago Bulls announced today that Special Assignments Scout Ron Adams will return to coaching as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder's coaching staff.

"Ron has a great understanding and knowledge of the NBA, and is a tremendous teacher of the game. While we are going to miss him here in Chicago, he will fit in well in Oklahoma City," said Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson. "He played a key role working with our players over the past five-plus years and I expect him to do the same in his new role with the Thunder."

In his 18th year in the NBA, Adams joined the Bulls prior to the 2003-04 campaign, as a member of Bill Cartwright's staff. Over the next five seasons he worked alongside Cartwright, Scott Skiles and Jim Boylan. During his five years as an assistant coach on the Bulls' bench, Chicago went 193-217 and advanced to the NBA Playoffs three times.
