The Chicago Bulls have named their new head coach and it is no other than former Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan. For those who were able to follow him, most may remember how Donovan led the Thunder to the playoffs in the five seasons he was at the helm. But in the eyes of Scottie Pippen, this may not be enough to catapult the Bulls back to the top.

Pippen knows what it takes to win, having won six NBA titles. He is aware that picking the right coach will be important. Though there are a lot of coaches who got fired this season, the name that the Bulls found best was Donovan. Unfortunately, Pippen does not share the same sentiment.

"If you’re looking at it from a fan perspective, I’m not impressed with what they did," Pippen said in an interview with Forbes. “I like Billy Donovan as a person but I don’t think he’s proved anything in the NBA that proves he’s worth investing in and bringing a team up that needs help like Chicago does."

Pippen singles out the fact that Donovan had two top players in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook at one point but failed to win an NBA title. In his book, Donovan is not the X-factor that the Bulls need.

“To me, I don’t see the value he brings to them. He’s going to be a coach but there are a lot of them out there. He didn’t do anything special in OKC that warranted him a second opportunity. That’s just my opinion," Pippen said.

On whether his insights will be taken into consideration or not remains to be seen. Donovan was signed to a four-year deal worth $24 million last week and vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karsinovas seems confident Donovan is their guy, ESPN reported.

"The success that he has sustained over the course of his coaching career puts him on a different level. We feel his ability to help his players reach their potential, both individually and collectively, will mesh well with our roster. Whether as a player or as a coach, he has won everywhere his career has taken him, and we hope that will continue here in Chicago," Karnisovas said.
