Default Kirk agrees to terms with Bulls.

Jerrys card buddy is back...

Kirk Hinrich has verbally committed to join the Bulls.

Hinrich is believed to have agreed on a two-year, $6 million deal.

Hinrich averaged 6.6 points and 2.8 assists in 25.8 minutes per game last season.

A Hinrich/Hamilton backcourt would've been great in 2005...

Too bad it's 2012. This can't be the end of summer moves. It can't be. Hinrich's offensive numbers are Bogans-esque...

The Bulls have made their first move in the NBA's free-agency period by bringing back a familiar face: Kirk Hinrich. As first reported by the Chicago Tribune, the veteran guard agreed to a two-year, $6-million contract, a source confirmed to CSNChicago.com.

The deal is believed to be the "mini" mid-level exception, according to the same source, which is earmarked for teams up against the salary cap. While Hinrich drew interest from several other NBA teams, including the nearby division rival Milwaukee Bucks, ultimately returning to the franchise that drafted him and being able to live with his family in his north-suburban home he has resided in during offseasons since being traded from the Bulls in the summer of 2010 was a deciding factor.

Darn. I thought they were going to trade for Chris Paul and sign Deron Williams.

Glad to see Kirk back. Might be frustrating to watch while he's starting, but once Derrick is back and healthy we will have one of the best backup PG's in the league. His defense will fit in nicely. He is familiar with our team and that will help as well. Good leadership. Strong veteran presence. Just hope that his shooting stays consistent and that he hits the open three at a high rate. He also came at a very reasonable and fair price. Overall happy with the signing. Just hope this isn't where our offseason moves end.

Good to have Cap Kirk back. I feel really dirty being ok with trading him to Washington for nothing just so we could possibly get LeBron. I hope he retires a Bull.
