AP source: Hinrich set for return to Bulls
A person with knowledge of the NBA confirmed the deal on condition of anonymity Monday because it has not been announced. Free agents can't sign new contracts until Wednesday. Hinrich's decision was first reported by the Chicago Tribune.
The 31-year-old Hinrich spent his first seven seasons with Chicago before he was traded to the Washington Wizards two years ago. He was later dealt to Atlanta, where he averaged 6.6 points in 48 games last season.
