The Bulls are expected to add veteran shooter Daequan Cook to their roster this weekend.
The move was first reported by ESPN.com’s Marc Stein and will bring Chicago’s roster to 14.
Cook cleared waivers from the Houston Rockets on Friday and will be signed to a prorated portion of the veteran’s minimum. He could be in uniform as early as Monday’s home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
He owns 36.5 careers three-point shooting percentage and is shooting 36 percent this season from deep.
Cook begin his career with the Miami Heat after being part of Ohio State’s Coach Thad Matta’s “Thad Five,” which featured Grizzlies’ Mike Conley and Greg Oden.
He won the 2009 three-point shooting contest during All-Star Weekend in Phoenix and has also played for the Oklahoma City Thunder as well as Houston.
The move allows the Bulls to sign players to 10-day contracts or add another prorated veteran’s minimum in March.
