7:30pm: Hunter and the Bulls have reached agreement on a one-year deal, tweets ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
Chicago is the only team with a roster spot open after releasing Spencer Dinwiddie on Friday. Rookie Denzel Valentine is the backup shooting guard to Dwyane Wade right now, so the 6’5″ Hunter could find playing time with the Bulls.
Hunter was a bit of a surprise cut for the Celtics as he was thought to have a good shot at beating out James Young for the final spot on the roster. Hunter’s contract for this season is fully guaranteed, so he will still receive a $1.2MM salary from Boston. The 23-year-old appeared in 36 games for the Celtics last year and made frequent trips to the D-League.
