The Chicago native was drafted 42nd by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and then traded to the Miami Heat but decided to play in Europe. Since 2008 he has played overseas, most recently for Russia’s Spartak St. Petersburg, where he earned 2012 All-Eurocup First Team and 2012 Eurocup MVP. He averaged 13.3 points, 3.7 assists, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.9 steals in 16 Eurocup games. He’s admired for his quick first step with the ability to finish in traffic, long defensive stature despite his 6’1 height, and his signature floater. His ability to create his own shot and be a defensive stopper would be of great value to the Bulls should they decide to give him an offer.
