07:32 AM ET 03.26 | hen reports circulated that the future of Bulls general manager John Paxson might be unstable, the name of former Bulls guard B.J. Armstrong surfaced as a possible successor. After all, Armstrong had served as a special assistant to former GM Jerry Krause. But Armstrong, who now represents Derrick Rose, says he is quite content on the other side of the desk. He is not eager to come off the bench to replace Paxson, as he often did as a player. "Being an NBA general manager really is a lot of pressure," Armstrong said Wednesday. "There's so much that goes into the job. I'm having a chance to understand the stress and the strain and the difficulty of that job. I don't wish that on anyone. I'm comfortable with what I'm doing."
