Marco Belinelli To Sign With Bulls, According To Report

Marco Belinelli will sign with the Chicago Bulls, according to sources Monday. Belinelli gives the Bulls some much-needed help at shooting guard after the team let go of C.J. Watson and John Lucas III after the 2011-12 season. Chicago is desperate for backcourt depth, especially with Derrick Rose out as he recovers from a torn ACL.

Belinelli averaged 11.8 points per game with the New Orleans Hornets last season. His 37.7 percent 3-point shooting was a career low, but he is still known as a quality shooter who can score a ton of points. The 26-year-old Italian was selected No. 18 overall during the 2007 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors.

Financial details of the deal have not yet been revealed.
