Bulls re-sign Captain Kirk to lead the Bulls second unit

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Phoenix Suns

With a Healthy Derrick Rose returning to the Bulls. One question remained in the Bulls off season. Who would back-up the former MVP? Would it be the season-saving mid-season sign DJ Augustin. Or the Seasoned veteran Kirk Hinrich.

On Sunday the Bulls answered that question and agreed to terms with Kirk Hinrich to a 2 year/5.6 million dollar contract. Hinrich gave the Bulls a “Home town discount” by turning down larger offers from Utah and Charlotte.  The Bulls will have the “room exception” of $2.7 million because of the Amnesty of Carlos Boozer.

The Bulls view Hinrich as an ideal complement for Derrick Rose because of his ability to take a large load off of Rose’s back with his defense and ball-handling.

In 73 games last season Hinrich averaged 9.1 points and 3.9 assists.
