Eric Baumbach of Willowbrook, Illinois, currently serves as the data analysis chair of his service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Outside of his studies and service work, Willowbrook’s Eric Baumbach is a fan of Chicago’s sports teams, including the Bulls of the NBA.

The Chicago Bulls have signed free agent guard Isaiah Canaan to a two-year deal, according to Canaan’s agent and media reports. The financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.

Canaan has been in the league for three years, the last two of which he spent with the Philadelphia 76ers. Last season, he averaged 11 points per game, a career high, shooting 36 percent from the field. He was also among only 11 players in the league who made four or more three pointers in at least 20 games last season.

Canaan played college ball at Murray State for four seasons before being selected 34th overall in the 2013 draft by the Houston Rockets. He played for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, a developmental league team, during his rookie season, averaging 21 points and 8 assists per game.

He joins a backcourt that has been bolstered during free agency with the signings of Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. Canaan looks to be a scoring threat whom the Bulls will likely bring off the bench to back up Wade and Rondo next season.
