R.J. Hunter Signs With Bulls

7:30pm: Hunter and the Bulls have reached agreement on a one-year deal, tweets ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

WEDNESDAY, 7:15p.m: R.J. Hunter, who was waived Monday by the Celtics, is in “serious discussions” with the Bulls, tweets Shams Charania of The Vertical. A deal could be finalized by Thursday.

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.

  1. As a Celtic fan, it was a shame to see RJ go. The roster spots in Boston are super competitive. Glad to see he is still in the NBA, and hope to see him show some of his skills in Chicago.

  2. Mike

    Bulls are trying to pretend to care about spacing. That’s cool.
