The Chicago Bulls reportedly agreed to a three-year, $41 million contract with forward Thaddeus Young on Sunday night.

Young, who played the last three seasons for the Indiana Pacers, agreed to the deal after the start of the NBA free agency period. Deals can officially be signed starting July 6.

Young tweeted about his new team with shout-outs to general manager Gar Forman, coach Jim Boylen and president of basketball operations John Paxson.

"What's up @chicagobulls ? Gar, Jim, and Pax thanks for opportunity to help build culture and get us back on track. Let's work," Young tweeted.

Young, 31, averaged 12.6 points and 6.5 rebounds in 81 games for the Pacers.

He has career averages of 13.4 points and 6.0 rebounds in 901 games (671 starts) over 12 seasons. Young has averaged in double digits in each of the past 11 campaigns.
