Chicago Bulls’ point guard Kirk Hinrich in his second stint with the team.
He was drafted by the Bulls with the seventh overall pick in the first round of the 2003 NBA Draft and he spent the first seven seasons of his career in Chicago before joining the Washington Wizards.
He was traded to the Atlanta Hawks after 48 games with the Wizards. After spending the 2011-12 season in Atlanta, he returned to the Bulls in 2012.
Now that Hinrich can again become a free agent, he would love to remain in Chicago.
“I like it here,” Hinrich told K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune. “Obviously, returning home was a big factor in why I came back. I would like to stay here. But I don’t know what’s in their future plans. Right now, I’m just trying to enjoy it while I’m in it and take what comes later.”
If Hinrich does leave Chicago, he isn’t asking for much.
“At this point of your career, you want to be on a team that is a good fit and has a chance to be a winner,” Hinrich said.
Hinrich is averaging 8.9 points, 3.9 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game this season.
