Bulls To Sign Devon Dotson To Two-Way Contract

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.

    Great signing for the Bulls. Dotson was the best player not drafted and he could potentially be the teams second choice at point guard next season

      Great for the Bulls, extremely poor decision for Dotson. He had a chance to really build himself up into a good draft pick with another year or two at Kansas. Yeah he could still do that in theory, but the road is a lot harder.

        This was a kid like Univeristy of Illinois Point guard listening to fools that said he was ready but next year he will be a lottery pick unlike this Kansas kid who should’ve stayed in Illinois and should’ve waited like the next year maybe top pick both same talent level..decent job by the Bulls after reaching to low with there lottery pick this year.

    Great signing! The Bulls could have a formidable starting five of Dotson, White, Lavine, Williams and Carter soon. As a Bulls fan, this is the most excited I’ve been about this team in years.

      If your team has a current undrafted free agent starting soon, it will not be formidable. Good luck to your team, but try and keep it realistic.

      Yo, are you serious? There is no way they will ever play Dotson, White and Lavine together in the same lineup. White will most likely be first scorer of the bench as a 6th man and Dotson won’t be close to starting unless he morphs into something crazy over preseason.

    Dotson was one of the smaller guards I had a hard time placing. Had him at the end of the draft

      I liked him a lot out of KU. I was actually hoping they’d grab him with their 2nd-round pick. Surprised he went undrafted, but glad the Bulls still got him. And he’s a hometown boy from Chicago.

    Actually the Raptors were pretty good with Fred Vanvleet starting. He’s an undrafted free agent.
