JULY 10TH: The Bulls have officially signed Dunleavy, according to a press release from the team.
JULY 1ST: The Bulls and Mike Dunleavy have a verbal agreement on their rumored deal, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com. Chicago will likely bring the 32-year-old swingman aboard using their mini mid-level exception, as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports pegged two years and $6MM as the terms of the agreement.
Dunleavy, who spent the past two seasons with the Bucks, spurns the Rockets, Mavs, Lakers Wolves and Knicks to head to Chicago, where he's reportedly intrigued with the idea of playing with Derrick Rose. He'll provide size, shooting and scoring punch off the bench for the Bulls, as the 6'9" Dunleavy has averaged double-figure scoring for nine of his 11 years in the league.
I looked at his free agent stock in the spring, figuring he and agent Arn Tellem might go for the mini mid-level with a contending team if his father didn't wind up with a coaching job somewhere. There are still a couple of head coaching vacancies, but it doesn't appear as though Mike Dunleavy Sr. will be getting back in the league this season.
