Dunleavy signed a new contract with the Bulls Tuesday, Jessica Camerato of Basketball Insiders reports.

Marc Stein of ESPN reported that the deal was three years and $15 million. Despite a drop in minutes last season, he averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 29 minutes per game. Dunleavy should remain a valuable asset to the Bulls organization for three more years.

Dunleavy is nearing a three-year, $15 million deal with the Bulls, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

The veteran Dunleavy posted a respectable statline in his second season with the Bulls, averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists. While his minutes decreased from 32 the previous season to 29 in 2014-15, the 13-year vet appears set to remain part of the Bulls' rotation for another three campaigns.

Dunleavy played in 63 games for the Bulls this season and averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.7 three-pointers a game.

Dunleavy continued to shoot well from behind the arc, but he averaged less than 10 points a game for the first time since the 2009-10 season. He enters the summer as a free agent and might not be back with the Bulls next year as they don't have a ton of cap space. The Bulls also have Doug McDermott waiting in the wings and he seems to fit a similar mold that Dunleavy does. It wouldn't be shocking to see Dunleavy change teams next season, but he should continue to be a solid source for three-pointers regardless of where he plays.

Dunleavy posted 19 points, four rebounds, and four assists in 37 minutes of action in Game 5's loss to the Cavaliers.

Dunleavy hit a pair of big threes to help the Bulls maintain momentum, but ultimately couldn't help lead the team to a victory. He's had a relatively inconsistent series, trading strong performances with weak ones, and so the Bulls will need him to come up strong in Game 6 to tie the series up.

Dunleavy had his worst game of the series Sunday in a Game 4 loss to the Cavs, scoring just four points (1-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and two steals in 33 minutes.

Dunleavy had been playing well in this series, shooting 50 percent or better in the first three games. He's scored 14 or more points twice in this series as well and is shooting 43.8 percent from three.

Dunleavy will not be suspended for his foul on Giannis Antetokounmpo, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports.

The chances of a suspension were likely slim, but it's still something that had to be confirmed. The Bulls should be full strength as they take on the Cavaliers.

Dunleavy has averaged 10.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.5 three-pointers in the first two games of the playoffs for the Bulls.

Dunleavy is seeing plenty of playing time as he has averaged 34 minutes a game in the playoffs so far. His shooting from behind the arc and ability to rebound make him an important part of the Bulls rotation.

Dunleavy had 24 points (8-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 33 minutes against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

This marks Dunleavy's second highest point total of the year. On Nov. 7, he recorded his season-high 27 points. Don't count on this kind of production going forward, as Dunleavy is averaging 9.6 points over his last 10 games.

Dunleavy finished with 21 points (7-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one blocked shot in 39 minutes during Wednesday's victory over the Pacers.

Dunleavy had shot less than 30 percent from the field in three of the last four games prior to Wednesday's matchup. He also had scored less then seven points in each of those games as well, so he continued to exemplify his inconsistent play with his most recent 21-point performance. While he'll randomly break out for a big scoring night here and there, he's too inconsistent to be worth much more than a look in deeper leagues. His biggest asset remains his three-point shooting, as he's hit at least one in each of his last 11 games.

Dunleavy scored 21 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 38 minutes Thursday in a win over the Thunder, in addition to grabbing four rebounds and dishing out two assists.

Dunleavy has been wildly inconsistent as of late. In his two previous games, he was held to a combined eight points, but also scored 21 Feb. 27 against the Timberwolves. While he can have scoring outbursts, Dunleavy simply isn't consistent enough to be a reliable fantasy option in standard leagues.
