The Chicago Bulls will not extend a $7.1 million qualifying offer to Kris Dunn, making him an unrestricted free agent this month, reports NBC Sports’ KC Johnson

A defensive specialist, Dunn was not part of the plans for the Bulls’ new front office lead by executive VP of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas and general manager Marc Eversley.

The Bulls plan to fill the roster with “two-way players with an emphasis on passing and shooting,” reports Johnson.

The No. 5 overall pick in 2016, Dunn averaged just 7.3 points on 25.9% shooting from three last season. His 2.0 steals per game were second in the League, and the 26-year-old was the only player in the top-10 who played fewer than 25 minutes per game.

As an unrestricted free agent to-be, Dunn is expected to draw interest from a number of teams, including the LA Clippers, per Johnson.
