On Monday, the Chicago Bulls announced the signing of Cameron Bairstow the 49th pick of the 2014 NBA draft. Bairstow will join his former New Mexico teammate Tony Snell. The details of the contract have not been announced but it is believed to be for three years with the first year being fully guaranteed and year two of the contract being 50 percent guaranteed. The NBA's rookie minimum salary for the 2014-15 season is $507,000.

Bairstow had a solid outing in his summer league debut and performed well by scoring 10.2 points, seven rebounds and shot 53 percent from the field.

The three year contract is a rarity for second round picks.

Bairstow is currently in Australia preparing for the  FIBA World Cup, he is one of 17 players invited to the Boomers Camp.
