Free agents are slowly starting to find new homes, and Mike Dunleavy Jr will be playing for the Chicago Bulls next season. The team and the player are working out a two-year deal.
The Chicago Bulls have reached an agreement in principle on a two-year, $6 million deal with free agent Mike Dunleavy Jr., league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
One of the most pursued mid-level salary players on the free-agent market, Dunleavy, 32, has drawn interest from the likes of Minnesota, Houston and Dallas, sources said. Dunleavy played the past two seasons with the Bucks.
Dunleavy will be part of the Bulls’ attempt to rebuild their bench. After having one of deepest teams two seasons ago, the Bulls let go of a lot of their key players while waiting for Derrick Rose to return from his injury. Now that Rose will be ready to go for the start of next season, Chicago should be looking for role players in free agency, and Dunleavy is the first piece of the puzzle. Dunleavy shot 0.428 percent from beyond the arc last season and should be a great fit.
