Hinrich also talked about his basketball future and impending free agency.
"I feel like, in my heart, I'm a Bull, I always will be. I grew up, you know, wanting to become a Bull, being a Bulls fan, so in an ideal situation, I'd love to be back," he said. "You know, I just hope that it's able to work out."
If Hinrich does resign with the Bulls, he would get a chance to share the court with fellow-Iowan Doug McDermott.
He's a great player and it'd be cool to have two Iowa guys on the same team," Hinrich said. "I enjoyed watching him in college and [I'm] excited to see him become a good NBA player."
