The Chicago Bulls are reportedly shopping Richard Hamilton, seven months after signing him, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune:

[L]eague sources said the Bulls have shopped Richard Hamilton’s expiring $5 million deal, which carries a mere $1 million guarantee for 2013-14. Thus far, there have been no takers.

Hamilton is a three-time All-Star and played a pivotal role in the 2004 Detroit Pistons team that won the NBA Championship. He was signed by the Bulls in December 2011 but was hobbled by injuries, playing in only 28 games and averaging 11.6 points in 24 minutes, his lowest scoring average since his rookie year in 1999.

It’s unlikely he’ll remain unsigned going into next season but according to Johnson, there are currently no teams interested in the veteran guard.
