Bulls could be interested in adding Quentin Richardson

The Chicago Bulls may be interested in adding veteran swingman and Chicago native Quentin Richardson at some point this season.

The Bulls are up against the salary cap right now, but are investigating minimum salary veteran options for when they can add a 14th player to the roster later in November. One of those options may be Chicago native Quentin Richardson, according to CSNChicago's Aggrey Sam. Richardson was waived by the Orlando Magic on Oct. 27th.

Richardson, who was a first round pick for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2000 out of DePaul, has averaged 10.3 points per game and 4.7 rebounds per game over his 12 year career with the Clippers, Suns, Knicks, Heat, and Magic. Last year with Orlando, he averaged 4.5 points and 2.6 rebounds per game.

It's also possible that the Bulls could hold off on adding another veteran for now, and add two players later on in the season. The team will let the early season play out before they decide to add another veteran free agent.
