STOCKHOLM - Former Chicago Bulls player Scottie Pippen will make a one-off appearance for Swedish side Sundsvall Dragons in January, the club announced on their Web site today.

The 42-year-old American, who played alongside Michael Jordan and helped the Chicago Bulls to win six NBA titles, will play for Sundsvall on January 11 when they take on Akropol at home in the Swedish basketball league.

Pippen retired in 2004 with a knee injury but has contemplated a return to the NBA according to media reports.
