The Chicago Bulls Officially Announce The Signing Of Shooting Guard Richard Hamilton

Former Detroit Pistons stalwart Richard Hamilton has a new home: he'll join the Chicago Bulls, thanks to a 2-year, $10 million contract that includes a team option for a third season. Hamilton is expected to take over for Keith Bogans as the team's starting shooting guard.

Hamilton-to-the-Bulls has been the worst kept secret in sports the last few weeks, but that didn't stop the veteran from keeping fans guessing on Twitter. On Tuesday, Hamilton tweeted that he was down to three teams, even if all signs pointed to him signing with Chicago all along. Now it's official. 

Hamilton isn't the flashy splash some Chicago fans wanted, but he's unquestionably an upgrade over Bogans. The 33-year old boasts career averages of 17.7 points per game, 3.5 assists per game and 3.2 rebounds per game. Hamilton is known for his work ethic and propensity to run around the court. He should be a seamless fit for Tom Thibodeau's Bulls.
