Michael Carter-Williams has found a new home, and he's staying in the Eastern Conference.
After not being extended a qualifying offer from the Bulls, the 25-year-old point guard has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $2.7 million deal with the Charlotte Hornets, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
Carter-Williams appeared in 45 games (starting in 19 of them) with Chicago, and averaged 6.6 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game and 2.5 assists per game while shooting .366 from the field. All of those numbers were career-lows for him, so a change of scenery and larger role could help get his career back on track.
He was acquired by the Bulls in October 2016 in a deal that sent Tony Snell to the Milwaukee Bucks.
