A few weeks ago, Chicago Bulls point guard Kirk Hinrich stated he’d like to re-sign with the team after this season. It’s a sentiment he reiterated after the Bulls were eliminated from postseason play by the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night.
But Hinrich knows it takes two and he’s not sure if the Bulls will want to bring him back.
That said, the former Kansas product says he’ll always think of himself as a member of the Chicago Bulls, no matter what his future brings.
“I grew up a Bull in this league,” Hinrich said. “I will always think of myself as a Chicago Bull no matter what happens. Just moving forward, I have a great relationship with a lot of my teammates here who are coming back. The organization — there’s definitely a lot of history there.”
Hinrich, who made $4 million dollars this past season, may be too expensive if the Bulls opt to chase after a high profile free agent like Carmelo Anthony.
