NOVEMBER 19: Dotson will receive a two-way contract from the Bulls, president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas confirmed today, per K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago (Twitter link).
NOVEMBER 18: Undrafted Kansas guard Devon Dotson has agreed to sign with the Bulls, sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link). The terms of Dotson’s deal aren’t yet known, but it sounds like he’ll be invited to training camp, perhaps with a shot to earn a regular-season roster spot.
A number of draft analysts – including Sam Vecenie and John Hollinger of The Athletic, as well as Jonathan Givony of ESPN – had Dotson listed as the top prospect who wasn’t selected in Wednesday’s draft.
In 30 games as a sophomore for the Jayhawks last season, Dotson averaged 18.1 PPG, 4.1 RPG, and 4.0 APG with 2.1 SPG.
As Wojnarowski notes, Dotson is a Chicago native, so joining the Bulls represents a homecoming for him. Dotson grew up idolizing Derrick Rose, Woj adds.
