The Chicago Bulls and Kirk Hinrich have come to a verbal agreement, for 2 years $6 million.
Kirk was drafted by the Bulls back in 2003, and played his first 7 NBA seasons with them before being traded to the Washington Wizards. With Derrick Rose being out of the lineup for the season, Hinrich will probably be the starting point guard at the start of the 2012-2013 season.The earliest we could see D.Rose in the lineup is January, but i wouldn’t rush him back. Also, this means the Bulls wont bring back point guard C.J. Watson. The Bulls have $3.2 million option on Watson, but they also drafted Marquis Teague in this years draft with
the 29th pick. The Bulls still have a few decisions to make this off season.The first decision is if they will bring back Omer Asik and match the offer sheet of the Houston Rockets of $25 million for 3 years. Also, if they will bring back Ronnie Brewer or Kyle Korver. Korver will be the likely candidate because of his deadly shooting from 3 point land. This is just the beginning of the summer, things can only get hotter.
