After a successful season wearing a Chicago Bulls uniform, it appears that reserve shooting guard Marco Belinelli is moving on. Belinelli and the San Antonio Spurs reached an agreement on a two-year contract worth nearly $6 million.

Belinelli was a key member of the Bulls' rotation and made an impact whether in a reserve role or as a starter. He averaged 9.6 points and 2.0 assists while shooting 40 percent from the field, 36 percent from beyond the three-point line and 84 percent from the charity stripe.

It was rumored that along with Nate Robinson, the Bulls would probably let Belinelli walk in free agency due to their current cap situation. The recent signing of Mike Dunleavy Jr. made it nearly impossible for the team to keep Belinelli around.

Belinelli will most likely be in a minutes competition with Manu Ginobili and Danny Green in the Spurs rotation. Belinelli can officially sign with San Antonio on July 10.
