Former Chicago Bulls player BJ Armstrong has been nominated to the Chicago Park District Board of Commissioners.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office made the announcement Sunday morning.

Armstrong, a three- time NBA champion with the Chicago Bulls, worked in the Bulls' front office for a time. Currently, he is Derrick Rose's agent.

Armstrong will take an active role in the mayor's Slam Dunk Project, which will work to renovate 100 outdoor basketball courts this year. It's a seat vacated by former Chicago Bear Bob Pickens.
