Bairstow signs with Bulls

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Cameron Bairstow is all signed up with his first NBA team. The Chicago Bulls announced Monday that Bairstow has signed a contract with the team. Terms of the deal for the former University of New Mexico forward were undisclosed as per team policy.

Bairstow was selected by the Bulls as the 49th overall pick in round two of the 2014 NBA Draft.

“We like Cameron’s combination as a player with his size, energy and physicality,” said Chicago Bulls General Manager Gar Forman in a press release. “He is a hard worker who will only get better with time.”

Bairstow led the Mountain West and Lobos in scoring in his final season of college ball, averaging 20.4 and 7.4 rebounds. He rejoins Lobo teammate Tony Snell in Chicago. Both players are coming off of solid performances in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Nevada. Up next for Bairstow is yet another training camp.

He is one of 17 players invited to the Australian Boomers camp in preparation for the upcoming FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
