Kirk Hinrich G CHI 1 Month

Bulls sign G Kirk Hinrich.

"Kirk had other opportunities elsewhere, but we are very happy he chose to remain in a Bulls uniform," general manager Gar Foreman said. Hinrich will backup Derrick Rose again this season and he'll be even more important with D.J. Augustin in Detroit. The Bulls are expected to add another backup soon.

Kirk Hinrich has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Bulls.

Terms of the deal should soon be disclosed but it's likely a short-term deal worth somewhere around $2-3 million per season. Hinrich will backup Derrick Rose at PG, but even if Rose gets injured there's not much fantasy value to be had -- in 61 starts last season, Hinrich averaged a modest 9.4 points on 39.2 percent shooting, 1.2 triples, 3.9 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

The Bulls, and Hornets are reportedly pursuing unrestricted free agent Kirk Hinrich.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is a big supporter of Hinrich, and Bulls GM Gar Forman stated that re-signing Hinrich would be "a priority" this offseason, so it would appear the Bulls would be a favorite to retain Hinrich. However, Charlotte currently has more flexibility with what they'd be able to offer Hinrich, so as it stands, nothing is certain. Hinrich would be a backup role wherever he lands, and doesn't do enough statistically to be considered a fantasy option outside of very deep leagues.

Kirk Hinrich expressed his desire to re-sign with the Bulls on Wednesday.

"I grew up a Bull in this league," Hinrich said. "I will always think of myself as a Chicago Bull no matter what happens. Just moving forward, I have a great relationship with a lot of my teammates here who are coming back. The organization -- there's definitely a lot of history there." At this stage of his career, he may be looking at the veteran minimum if he hopes to stay in Chicago. Still, Hinrich performed well after being thrust into the starting role due to the Derrick Rose injury. He provides little fantasy value, but with Rose's injury history, he could see steady minutes if he does return next season.

Kirk Hinrich went to the line with less than three seconds remaining in overtime of Tuesday's Game 2 and the Bulls down 101-99, but missed both free throws in the loss.

He missed the first one, then intentionally missed the second one and the Bulls weren't able to get the rebound. Hinrich had 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals on 5-of-13 shooting, but this game might have ended differently had he hit the free throws at the end of the game. The Bulls are now down 0-2 and heading to Washington for Games 3 & 4.

Kirk Hinrich suggested that he might re-sign with the Bulls as an unrestricted free agent this summer.

"I like it here," Hinrich said. "Obviously, returning home was a big factor in why I came back. I would like to stay here. But I don't know what's in their future plans." He added that he's finishing the regular season in better health than he has for the past "three or four seasons," which bodes well for the Bulls as they roll toward the playoffs as the East's fourth seed.

On the heels of Friday's scoreless game, Kirk Hinrich scored 11 points with four assists and one steal in 30 minutes vs. the Celtics.

D.J. Augustin caught fire off the bench with 33 points in 31 minutes, but on most nights he and Hinrich remain locked in a value-stunting timeshare. There's no reason to rely on Hinrich for value in standard fantasy leagues, even with four games on tap this week.

Kirk Hinrich missed all six of his field goals for his first scoreless game of the season on Saturday, playing 18 minutes vs. D.J. Augustin's 33 minutes.

Hinrich has only cracked double-digits in 27 games this season, so it's not surprising to see him sputter out from the field. The Bulls had 36 points at halftime on Saturday and Tom Thibodeau simply needed Augustin's offense more than Hinrich's defense, and the two should continue a fairly even minute-share at PG vs. Boston on Sunday.

Kirk Hinrich is averaging 10.6 points and 1.6 three-pointers since the All-Star break, while shooting 49.2 percent from downtown during that stretch.

He's chipping in 2.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.9 steals for borderline value in 14-team leagues, but his contributions have been far more valuable for the playoff-bound Bulls. "I'm trying to be aggressive," said Hinrich, who will be a free agent this summer. "I feel like I've been in a good rhythm." He and D.J. Augustin are both averaging 29 minutes per game over the past month but Augustin's superior scoring gives him the edge for fantasy purposes.

Kirk Hinrich scored seven points with two boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes on Friday vs. the Pacers.

His March stats have been all over the place with averages of 8.9 points, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 triples on 38.5 percent from the field. This has been the story for Hinrich all season, but the contributions in steals and triples put him on the radar as a player to own in standard leagues.
