Bulls make trade for Quincy Pondexter official

Quincy Pondexter is officially a Chicago Bull.

After a trade between the Bulls and the New Orleans Pelicans was reported Thursday, the deal was announced Friday. Pondexter comes to Chicago along with New Orleans' second-round pick in next year's draft, while the Bulls sent away the draft rights to Ater Majok.

Pondexter was a first-round pick of the Oklahoma City Thunder back in 2010. The former Washington Husky spent his first five NBA seasons with the New Orleans Hornets, Memphis Grizzlies and Pelicans, averaging 5.3 points and 2.0 rebounds over 279 games.

Pondexter missed the entirety of the past two seasons recovering from knee surgery. He last played in a game on April 25, 2015, a playoff game against the Golden State Warriors.
