Medium 02b0b0d10aaec9b49df800b690e62afb Former Chicago Bulls point guard B.J. Armstrong has listed for sale his five bedroom, 6.5 bath at 1550 Hawthorne St. in Highland Park for the asking price of $2.374 million.

Matt Silver of @properties is the listing agent for the property.

Armstrong, 42, spent seven of his 11 years in the NBA with the Bulls, playing an integral role in the club's three straight NBA titles from 1991-1993. Originally drafted by the team with the 18th pick of the 1989 NBA Draft, Armstrong came off the bench for his first three seasons with the team before earning the starting point guard spot in 1992-93, and led the league in 3-point percentage that season as the Bulls won a third straight NBA crown.

Armstrong earned his only career All-Star selection during the 1993-94 season, but the Bulls never again duplicated their success with Armstrong in the lineup. He was selected first overall by the Toronto Raptors in the 1995 NBA Expansion Draft and went on to play for the Golden State Warriors, Charlotte Hornets and Orlando Magic before he returned to the Bulls for his final season in 1999-2000.

Following his retirement in 2000, he served as the special assistant to vice president of basketball operations Jerry Krause and later as a scout for the team. He's also worked as a basketball analyst for ESPN and is currently a sports agent with the Los Angeles-based Wasserman Media Group, where he represents current Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.

Originally from Detroit, Armstrong starred at the University of Iowa, where he led the Hawkeyes to their only No. 1 ranking in school history and a run to the Elite Eight in 1987. The school retired his No. 10 jersey in 1992.

According to BlockShopper.com, there were 236 home sales in Highland Park in 2008, with a median sales price of $430,000.
