Hunter gets new job with Bulls
The Chicago Bulls have given former guard Lindsey Hunter a new
role, hiring him as player development assistant after waiving him
earlier in the week.
Hunter basically served as a mentor for the younger players
during his 1 1/2 seasons with the Bulls, particularly All-Star
Derrick Rose, and rarely got into games. He spent nearly 17 years
in the NBA, winning championships with the Los Angeles Lakers in
2002 and Detroit Pistons in 2004, and was the league’s oldest
player at 39 when the Bulls waived him on Wednesday.
In a statement Friday, Hunter says the move is “a natural
progression” that he hopes will help the team in the short term
and in the future.
