In accordance with team policy, terms of the contract were not announced. “Kirk has always been a big part of creating the professional culture we want day in, day out surrounding our club,” said Chicago Bulls General Manager Gar Forman. “He helps our team in so many ways and Kirk had other opportunities elsewhere, but we are very happy he chose to remain in a Bulls uniform.” NBA.com

Wednesday morning, almost two years to that day, Hinrich expressed a similar sentiment. “I like it here,” Hinrich said of his Bulls’ situation. “Obviously, returning home was a big factor in why I came back. I would like to stay here. But I don’t know what’s in their future plans. Right now, I’m just trying to enjoy it while I’m in it and take what comes later.” Chicago Tribune

"At this point of your career, you want to be on a team that is a good fit and has a chance to be a winner," Hinrich said. Coaches and teammates consistently laud Hinrich for serving as an organizer at both ends. And Hinrich said he feels healthier at the end of this season than he has in the last "three or four seasons." He would fit next season if the price is right. "I feel good," Hinrich said. "It's that time of year where you have to stay focused and make sure your game is in good shape for the playoffs." Chicago Tribune

Hinrich has generated the most interest, according to league sources. In the last year of his deal, several contenders, including Golden State, have inquired. However rival executives believe that with Chicago in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race the Bulls are unlikely to deal Hinrich, if for no other reason than the further gutting of the roster could deepen the divide between head coach Tom Thibodeau and the front office.

In one breath, Kirk Hinrich said he has "made significant progress" with the right hamstring injury that sidelined him for the fourth straight game Monday. In the next, Hinrich admitted he might not return Wednesday, when the Bulls begin a six-game trip in San Antonio. "I'm not going to take anything off the table, but my plan is to be cautious because it's something I've had in the past," Hinrich said. "I'm hoping to not have anything linger and hopefully be able to finish the second half strong." Chicago Tribune
