The Chicago Bulls aren’t waiting around when it comes to Mike Dunleavy Jr. as it’s being reported by Yahoo Sports that Dunleavy and the Bulls are near an agreement on a two year deal worth $6 million dollars.

Per Wojo:

Chicago has emerged as a frontrunner to sign free agent Mike Dunleavy, Jr., league sources tell Y! Sides discussing two-year, $6M deal.

Dunleavy Jr. spent the past two seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks as a productive talent off the bench. He would fill a similar role in Chicago, who are expected to lose at least one, possibly more of their bench players to free agency.

The 32 year old Dunleavy had his most productive seasons as a member of the Indiana Pacers in 2007 and 2008 as a starter, but has since played a reserve role – especially in Milwaukee.

Dunleavy brings with him solid shooting, something the Bulls can use to replace Marco Belinelli who is expected to depart via free agency.
