Free agent guard Kirk Hinrich has been a rumored target of the Chicago Bulls for much of this year's free agency period. But if the Bulls are going to sign him, it will likely be because Hinrich, who spent the first seven years of his career in Chicago, gave the franchise a discount, or because the Bulls offered a slightly longer contract than their competitors with maybe more guaranteed money.
Who those competitors are is not exactly known, but one team has made an offer to the combo guard: the Milwaukee Bucks. According to CSN (via Blog a Bull), the Bucks have offered Hinrich a contract worth $4 million per season, though the length of the contract is not yet known. The Bulls are likely only going to be in on Hinrich for the mini-mid level exception, worth about $3 million a year.
The Bucks are coached by Scott Skiles, who's entire four-plus year tenure as head coach of the Bulls overlapped with Hinrich's time in Chicago.
