The Bulls on Monday announced the hire of Toni Kukoc as special adviser to Michael Reinsdorf, the team's president and chief operating officer.

Kukoc joins Scottie Pippen in title, albeit with different responsibilities.

"You only have to be around Toni for a few minutes to appreciate his personality, passion, and professionalism and recognize the contributions he will make to our team in his new role," Reinsdorf said in a statement. "Toni will work across the organization and his duties will be wide-ranging. He will bring valuable perspective that comes with experience to many areas, whether it is relating to the international players on our team or sharing what it means to be a Chicago Bull when talking to partners and fans. Toni will be a strong representative of both the team's legacy and its future."

Kukoc spent seven of his 13 seasons with the Bulls, winning three titles and the 1996 NBA Sixth Man of the Year honors.

"It is a thrill and an honor to again be a part of the team that helped define my basketball career here in the United States and in Chicago," Kukoc said in the statement. "The Bulls have become my extended family, and I am really looking forward to the future and being a Bull for life."
