Bulls Sign Adama Sanogo To Two-Way Deal

JULY 10: The signing is official, the team’s PR department tweets.

JUNE 23: The Bulls are set to sign undrafted Connecticut center Adama Sanogo to a two-way contract, sources inform Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link).

Sanogo, whose Huskies won the NCAA title this year, had been projected to be the last pick in the draft, No. 58, in ESPN’s final mock draft prior to tonight. In 39 games for Connecticut during 2022/23, the 6’9″ junior logged 17.2 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 1.3 APG, 0.8 BPG and 0.7 SPG.  That block tally is actually his lowest ever in college. He boasts a career average of 1.2 BPG over the course of his three NCAA seasons. He also boasted solid shooting splits of .606/.365/.766.

Chicago was compelled to forfeit its own 2023 second round selection by the league as a penalty for tampering to sign point guard Lonzo Ball in free agency. Ball has played a total of 35 games in two years for the club.

The 21-year-old Sanogo was named the NCAA Final Four Most Outstanding Player for his efforts in the tourney this spring, in addition to qualifying for the NCAA All-Tourney Team. He was also a two-time All-Big East First Teamer during his collegiate stint.

Sanogo has a 7’3″ wingspan and is a hyper-efficient scorer near the basket, but questions linger about his height and defensive ability at the next level.
