Report: Bulls 'may pursue' Maurice Evans

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld reports that the Bulls may go after free agent shooting guard Maurice Evans.

With Richard Hamilton sidelined indefinitely (could be a week, could be a month, who knows!), a new name has popped up on the Bulls' radar. Or maybe it's not that new because supposedly the Bulls have shown interest in the past. From Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy:

The 34-year-old Maurice Evans played in just 24 games for Washington last season, and real shocker here, wasn't all too good. He averaged 4.9 points on 40.2 percent shooting in 14.3 minutes per game, although he did shoot a somewhat respectable 37.8 percent from three-point land.

There was some talk in the comments of the Hamilton injury story about signing somebody to a 10-day contract, but those can't actually be handed out until Jan. 5. So for now, that's out of the question. And if the Bulls were to pursue a shooting guard to potentially keep on the roster for the rest of the year, I'd much rather take a flier on Delonte West.

However, I wouldn't rush to sign any 2-guard unless the Hamilton injury is more severe than is being initially reported. It might as well could be, because the Bulls are liars and Rip is made of glass, but we don't know that yet. For now, I think Marco Belinelli and Jimmy Butler could probably hold down the fort for the short-term. Probably.
