Bulls Free Agency: Kirk Hinrich, Bulls Reportedly Agree To Deal

The Chicago Bulls have finally made a move. According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls and free agent point guard Kirk Hinrich have verbally agreed to a contract.

Though terms of the deal have yet to be released, a source told Johnson that the contract is reportedly worth $6 million total over two years. This means that the Bulls likely fit Hinrich in using the "mini-mid level" exception, and that Hinrich turned down more lucrative offers to return to Chicago, where he spent the first seven years of his career.

Hinrich shot 41 percent from the field last season, and though his offensive game has slipped, he's a strong defender who can play both guard positions.
