Former NBA player and most recent Dancing With The Stars champion, Iman Shumpert, is interested in an NBA return.

The Berwyn native played in the NBA for 10 years. He was selected by the New York Knicks with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Shumpert averaged 7.2 PPG, 3.3 RPG, and 1.8 APG. He won an NBA title in 2016 with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

When interviewed by Sam Chatman of ABC 7 Chicago, Shumpert said he is "always available for the Bulls." The Chicago Bulls, when healthy, are a little guard-heavy at the moment. Though, with the injury to Alex Caruso and COVID-19 running rampant by infecting Coby White, Javonte Green, and DeMar DeRozan, it wouldn't be insane to give him a tryout.

That most likely will not happen, but it'd be cool to see an Illinois guy get a chance to play for his favorite team growing up. For now, he can hold up his Dancing with the Stars trophy and attempt to make a comeback to the league.
