JANUARY 13: The Bulls plan to sign Malcolm Hill to a 10-day contract, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link). Hill signed a 10-day hardship contract with the Hawks last month that expired on December 31, making him an unrestricted free agent. In three games with Atlanta, Hill averaged 5.7 PPG, 2.0 RPG, and 1.3 SPG in 15.3 MPG.
Hill went undrafted in 2017 out of Illinois and has since played in the Philippines, Germany, Kazakhstan, and Israel. The 6’6″ wing returned stateside this year and had been playing for the Birmingham Squadron, the Pelicans’ G League affiliate, prior to his 10-day hardship contract with Atlanta.
In 14 NBAGL games (31.6 MPG) for the Squadron, Hill averaged 16.8 PPG, 6.4 RPG, and 1.6 SPG on .509/.402/.810 shooting. Hill also spent time in the health and safety protocols at the end of his contract with the Hawks.
