Bulls Sign Isaiah Canaan

JULY 20: The Bulls have formally announced their deal with Canaan. “We are excited to add Isaiah to our group,” GM Gar Forman said in a statement. “We feel his ability to knock down perimeter shots will be an asset to our team.”

JULY 12: The Bulls have reached a contract agreement with free agent Isaiah Canaan, Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops relays (via Twitter). It will be a two-year pact worth $2.2MM, Scotto notes, though it is unclear how much, if any, guaranteed money will be included.

Canaan become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after the Sixers declined to tender him a qualifying offer worth $1,215,696. Canaan was just two starts and 34 minutes away from triggering the starter criteria this past season, but as a result of a torn left labrum he failed to log the necessary numbers. The qualifying offer needed to make him a restricted free agent this offseason would have jumped to $2,725,003, had he met the criteria.

The 25-year-old appeared in 77 games this past season, including 39 as a starter, averaging 11.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 25.5 minutes per outing while shooting .360/.363/.833 from the field.

Just what the Bulls needed another guard that likes to have the ball. Good job GarPax. At least this one can hit an outside shot. Now trade Butler for Gallinari or Gay and sign a back up Center that’s taller than 6′ 8″ and this might make sense.

So you want the Bulls to trade their All-Star player Jimmy Butler for a guy who can’t stay healthy in Gallinari and someone who has the same skill set but doesn’t play defense half as well in Rudy Gay? I’m glad you aren the GM.

The Bulls will be a dumpster fire for a LONG, LONG time. Not even a lottery pick will change the direction of this team. As long as the front office is controlled by clueless ass-clowns like GarPax with their mediocre decisions and lack of understanding where the game is heading, the Bulls will be irrelevant in the NBA.
