Bulls sign Ex-Piston Rip Hamilton

From ESPNChicago.com:

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Former Detroit Pistons All-Star Rip Hamilton signed with the Chicago Bulls, the team announced Wednesday night.

He is expected to practice with his new team on Thursday, according to a league source.

"He'll have to answer all of (the questions) right now," Derrick Rose said, laughing. "He's someone Chicago's been asking for, a two. I guess, a legit two. He's won a championship and his resume speak for itself."

Hamilton will be formally introduced after Thursday's practice.

"We are excited to welcome a player, and person, with the credentials of Richard Hamilton to our organization," Bulls general manager Gar Forman said in a statement. "Rip has been a winner at every level. His resume speaks for itself, and we are confident that he will be an excellent fit with our team, both on and off the floor."
