The Chicago Bulls have signed guard Isaiah Canaan.

A three-year veteran, Canaan spent most of the past two seasons with Philadelphia. He averaged a career-high 11 points last season while shooting 36 percent from the field and just over 36 percent from long range, hitting 176 of 485 3-pointers. Canaan was one of 11 players in the NBA who made four or more 3s in at least 20 games.

 

The Bulls announced the signing, but did not reveal the terms of the contract on Wednesday.

Canaan's agency tweeted last week that he agreed to a two-year deal.

 

>>Kobe Gets Invite For Rio Olympics, Still Staying Home

 

Team USA practice started this week, and for the first time in nine years Kobe Bryant was not part of the team's Olympic preparation. Bryant told reporters in January he'd decided to decline to participate following his retirement last season.

 

However, that didn't stop Team USA and Coach K from circling back to make absolutely sure the Black Mamba didn't want in.

 

 

According to Arash Markazi of ESPN, Jerry Colangelo reached out to Bryant to see if he'd be interested in joining the roster, but Bryant politely said "thank you but no."

 

Coach K said quote -"He's still a part of our program."
