DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Richard Hamilton wants another championship, and he sees a chance to win one with the Chicago Bulls.

The veteran guard called the Bulls “an awesome fit for me” on Thursday and said he’s looking forward to playing alongside MVP Derrick Rose. The Bulls won more games than any other team during the regular season and reached the Eastern Conference finals, but one thing they could have used was more height and scoring in the backcourt.

Hamilton, who is 6-foot-7, should fill that need.

The three-time All-Star signed for three years and $15 million on Wednesday, with the team holding an option for that third season. His nine-year run in Detroit produced a championship and regular trips to the Eastern Conference finals.
