Chicago Bulls Re-sign Kirk Hinrich

The Chicago Bulls will once again benefit from having Kirk Hinrich as a backup point guard to Derrick Rose.

David Aldridge of TNT reported on twitter that Hinrich and the Bulls have agreed on a two-year contract.

After the signing of Pau Gasol and imminent signing of Nikola Mirotic, the Bulls were strapped for cash. That is the reason why D.J. Augustin signed a contract with the Detroit Pistons as opposed to returning to the Bulls.

Hinrich has become a personal favorite of Bulls’ head coach Tom Thibodeau. Last season with the Bulls, Hinrich averaged 9.1 points per game while shooting 39% from the field. Hinrich registered a player efficiency rating of 10.80 last season as well while starting in place of the injured Rose.

With the re-signing of Hinrich, barring any trades, the Bulls roster has been set.
