The Bulls signed Croatian rookie Toni Kukoč in 1993 after taking the 6’10 small forward in the second round of the 1990 NBA Draft. It took Kukoč three years to finally sign with the Bulls.
Kukoč played for the Bulls for sevens seasons and won four NBA titles. He averaged 14 points, five rebounds and four assists during that time.
The former Bulls forward was the sixth man of the year in 1996 but was never named an All-Star during his 15-year career.
The Bulls hired Kukoč as special advisor to Michael Reinsdorf in August, and he will join former Bulls great Scottie Pippen in the front office.
