Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bulls re-signed guard Kirk Hinrich on Monday to an undisclosed contract.
Hinrich averaged 9.1 points and 3.9 assists in 73 games with the Bulls last season.
"Kirk has always been a big part of creating the professional culture we want day in, day out surrounding our club," said Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman. "He helps our team in so many ways and Kirk had other opportunities elsewhere, but we are very happy he chose to remain in a Bulls uniform."
An 11-year veteran of the NBA, the 33-year-old Hinrich has played in 767 regular-season games and averaged 11.8 points and 5.2 assists per contest.
The Bulls also signed second-round draft pick Cameron Bairstow. The forward was selected 49th overall after averaging 9.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 134 games at the University of New Mexico.
