AUGUST 11: The signing is official, according to NBA.com’s transactions log.
AUGUST 6: The Bulls are re-signing Javonte Green to a two-year contract, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports (via Twitter). Chicago recently issued Green a $1.9MM qualifying offer to make him a restricted free agent.
Green appeared in 16 games with the team last season after being acquired in a three-team, trade-deadline deal back in March. He started the campaign with Boston and appeared in a total of 41 games between the two teams, averaging 3.6 PPG and 1.7 RPG in 11.5 minutes per contest.
Chicago has made significant upgrades to its roster this year, trading for All-Star center Nikola Vucevic before the deadline and reaching sign-and-trade deals to land Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan this week. The team also agreed to a four-year contract with Alex Caruso.
Green is expected to provide depth for the franchise as it competes for a spot in the playoffs next season. The 28-year-old swingman went undrafted back in 2015 and holds 89 games of NBA experience.
