MARCH 1: The Bulls have officially signed Eddie to a 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release.
FEBRUARY 28: The Bulls are expected to call up small forward Jarell Eddie from their G League affiliate, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN, who tweets that Eddie is on track to receive a 10-day contract from the club. Chicago won’t have to make a roster move to accommodate the signing, since the team currently has an opening.
Eddie, who has seen NBA action with the Wizards, Suns, and Celtics, has spent most of the 2017/18 season in the G League with the Windy City Bulls. He has provided excellent outside shooting for Chicago’s affiliate, posting 16.9 PPG with a .475 3PT% in 18 games.
Eddie’s solid play for Windy City earned him a 10-day contract with the Celtics in January, but he didn’t receive a second deal after that first one expired, since Boston needed his roster spot for Greg Monroe. If the Bulls want to keep Eddie around for more than 10 days, they’ll have the opportunity to sign him to a second 10-day pact before deciding on whether to commit to a rest-of-season contract.
The Bulls would take on a cap hit of $83,129 by signing Eddie to a 10-day deal.
