The Bulls are looking to find a trade partner in hopes of moving shooting guard Richard Hamilton, according to a report from K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. Hamilton, 34, is set to earn $5MM in the second year of the contract he signed with the Bulls in December 2011. The third year, a team option for 2013/14, can be bought out for $1MM.

The former Huskies star averaged 11.6 PPG and 3.0 APG during his first season in Chicago in which he missed over half the season due to a shoulder injury. Hamilton would be a great fit for a contender as his level of play improves during the playoffs. In 126 career playoff games, Hamilton has averaged 20.2 PPG and 3.7 APG with the Pistons and Bulls.
