Kyrylo Fesenko worked out for the Chicago Bulls earlier this week, and the team and the Ukranian big man have agreed to a non-guaranteed contract, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Under the NBA's salary cap rules, the Bulls, who have reached the league's hard cap, cannot sign a player to a guaranteed deal until mid-November. Chicago, though, is hoping that Fesenko will have a good camp and will be willing to wait until that period in order to sign with the Bulls.

Fesenko spent nearly all of last season out of the league, though he did appear in three games for the Indiana Pacers, scoring eight points and grabbing nine rebounds in 17 total minutes. The first four seasons of Fesenko's career were spent with the Utah Jazz, where he appeared in 132 games. For his career, Fesenko has averaged 2.3 points and 3.0 rebounds per game, but he would likely be the last big off the bench for the Bulls.
