The Chicago Bulls are reportedly expected to sign former University of Wisconsin guard Bronson Koenig to a training camp contract on Wednesday. 

Koenig, who signed a two-way contract with the Milwaukee Bucks after going undrafted out of Wisconsin this summer, was free to sign with another team after the Bucks waived him last week. 

The 22-year-old averaged 5.2 points and 1.0 rebounds per game in five appearances with the Bucks' entry in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. 

The 6-foot-3 guard's contract with Chicago will reportedly be an Exhibit 9 deal, which would allow the Bulls to waive Koenig with minimal financial commitment if he were to get injured during training camp or preseason play. 

Jonathan Givony with ESPN.com first reported deal, saying Koenig would be among a half dozen players fighting for Chicago's final two roster spots. 

Koenig, a native of La Crosse, averaged 9.9 points, 2.0 assists and 2.0 rebounds over four seasons with the Badgers.
