The Chicago Bulls are interested in veteran shooting guard Michael Redd, according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio. The Bulls are one of five teams interested in the 32-year-old veteran, according to the report.
The Bulls are searching for a veteran presence to come off the bench and had recently been connected to Tracy McGrady. The team would likely have to make a corresponding move to sign Redd, because of their position against the salary cap.
Redd appeared in 51 games last season with the Phoenix Suns, averaging 8.2 points in 16 minutes per game and shooting just 40 percent from the floor. Despite the low numbers, Redd could be a valuable asset to a team needing experience on the bench and leadership in the locker room. Redd had averaged over 20 points per game in his career with the Milwaukee Bucks before ACL injuries in 2009 and 2010 derailed his career.
The other teams reportedly interested in the veteran are the Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets, Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder.
