Hunter, a first-round pick of the Celtics in 2015, appeared in 38 games as a rookie. He struggled from the field, shooting just 36.7 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from deep. He ultimately lost out on a roster spot this preseason in a crowded Celtics backcourt.
Hunter was the darling of the 2015 NCAA Tournament playing for his father at Georgia State. Hunter hit a game-winning 3-pointer against Baylor to propel the 14th-seeded Panthers to an opening-round win.
Hunter was a two-time Sun Belt Player of the Year, averaging 19.7 points per game as a junior.
The Bulls open their 2016-17 season tomorrow night against the Celtics.

Minnesota added a few games to its future schedules Wednesday, announcing upcoming contests with BYU and Colorado.
The Gophers will take on the Cougars in Minneapolis on Sept. 26, 2020, and in Provo, Utah, on Sept. 20, 2025. The Gophers will battle the Buffaloes in Boulder on Sept. 18, 2021, and in the Twin Cities on Sept. 17, 2022.
Minnesota and BYU have never met in football, but the Gophers and Buffs have played three times, with Colorado winning all three of those games in 1972, 1991 and 1992.
The newly announced games might not be matchups against perennially elite programs, but they do provide Power Five conference and Power Five conference-caliber opponents for the Gophers.
Minnesota has pretty weak non-conference schedules over the next three seasons, with a road game at Oregon State next season being the lone game against a Power Five team in the next nine non-conference games. The other eight games come against Buffalo, Middle Tennessee State, New Mexico State, Fresno State, Miami (Ohio), South Dakota State and Georgia Southern.
These four games are the only announced non-conference games for the Gophers past the 2019 season.
