The Chicago Bulls have recently signed second-year guard R.J. Hunter to a one-year deal. Hunter was recently cut by the Boston Celtics so that they could keep James Young.
R.J. Hunter’s agreement with Chicago will be a one-year deal, source told ESPN.

Hunter didn’t play much in his rookie season, only appearing in 36 games, but the young player has the potential to be a solid player in the league. He could be an above-average playmaker and defender in the league. He also has an ability that the Bulls need: he can shoot the ball. In the NCAA tournament, he hit a clutch three to put the 14th-seeded Georgia State Panthers over the Baylor Bears two years ago, and he will be able to hit threes for the Bulls.
Hunter likely won’t play much at the start of the season, but he can probably find a way to give himself some minutes later on in the year.
