Shooters wanted.

The Bulls are hoping that Isaiah Canaan can help fill that vacancy.

According to a league source, it was confirmed that the Bulls have reached a two-year agreement with the 25-year-old guard, hoping the volume shooter can give them a backcourt threat from the outside.

Last season with the 76ers, the 6-footer launched 485 threes (11th most in the league), making 176 of them (36 percent) on his way to averaging 11 points per game.

Drafted 34th overall out of Murray State back in 2013, he has played for both Houston and Philadelphia, starting 39 games for the 76ers last season.
