The Chicago Bulls have been linked to former Utah Jazz center Kyrylo Fesenko in the NBA rumor mill.

The Chicago Bulls are reportedly among four NBA teams showing interest in unrestricted free agent center Kyrylo Fesenko, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. The 7'1" Ukrainian center played four seasons as a backup for the Utah Jazz, and has a career average of 2.3 points and 1.3 rebounds per game. Fesenko tore the meniscus in his left knee while playing for the Ukrainian national team in the Eurobasket Tournament during the fall, and has been rehabbing in Denver while trying to find a landing spot in the NBA.

According to Woelfel, the Milwaukee Bucks are trying to set up a meeting with the free agent big man for next week, as his agent, Stu Lash, has said his client is "fine now" and that "he's ready to go." The other teams reportedly interested in signing Fesenko are the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks, two teams the Bulls may have to face in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
