The Chicago Bulls waived center Kyrylo Fesenko on Thursday, according to a team press release, ending his two-week tenure with the team.

Fesenko signed with the Bulls as a free agent on Oct. 1, after appearing in three games for the Indiana Pacers last season. In his lone preseason game with Chicago, which came on Oct. 12 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Fesenko had one rebound in four minutes of action.

The Philadelphia 76ers drafted Fesenko in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft, and promptly traded him to the Utah Jazz. Fesenko spent four seasons in Utah, averaging two points and two rebounds per game. Following the 2009-10 season, Fesenko was offered a multi-year deal by the Houston Rockets, but instead opted to stay with the Jazz on a one-year contract.

Fesenko, a 7'1, 280-pound Ukrainian, played professionally in his home country for three years before heading to the States.
