R.J. Hunter was a first-round pick of the Boston Celtics in 2015, and he went on to play in 35 games for them, but during training camp this year Boston decided to move on and waived him the former Georgia Tech shooting guard. The Chicago Bulls picked him up on a non-guaranteed minimum contract.
Thursday, the Bulls waived him. He played in just three games for them this season as a reserve shooting guard.
For Hunter, who played a lot of last season with the Maine Red Claws, it is likely back to the D-League.
The Bulls made the move now to save some money, reports Bobby Marks of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports.
