The Miami Heat's vice president of basketball operations, Adam Simon, will not pursue the Chicago Bulls' top executive role, the Heat confirmed Monday, according to The Associated Press' Tim Reynolds.

As they make big changes to their front office, the Bulls are reportedly interested in replicating aspects of the Heat's organizational structure. That apparently includes the possibility of adding veteran guard Goran Dragic and high-flying forward Derrick Jones Jr., who will both be free agents in the offseason.

While Simon is no longer a candidate, the Bulls interviewed Utah Jazz general manager Justin Zanik on Monday and plan to speak with Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas this week, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Toronto Raptors general manager Bobby Webster and Indiana Pacers general manager Chad Buchanan were both linked to the Bulls' top job but are likely to stay with their current teams, Johnson reports.
