CHICAGO (AP) Toni Kukoc has been hired by the Chicago Bulls as a special adviser to the team president.

Kukoc helped the Bulls win three championships. President Michael Reinsdorf says Kukoc's duties will be ''wide-ranging,'' from relating to international players to talking to business partners and fans.

Kukoc calls it ''a thrill and an honor'' to be back with the Bulls.

Kukoc spent 13 seasons in the NBA - seven in Chicago. He played on the Bulls' second championship three-peat in the 1990s and was the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year in 1996.

The Bulls announced the hiring Monday. Former teammate Scottie Pippen has been in a similar role since 2012.
