Chicago Bulls Add Former NBA Champ To Roster


The Chicago Bulls have been searching for a big body to add to their roster for much of the season. Today, it's being reported that they will add a player in Jordan Bell who not only has a championship ring to his credit, but has also been one of the top performers in the G League this season. 

Bell actually started one game in the 2019 Finals for the Golden State Warriors, having won a ring the year before. He's only 26 years old. 

Playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors, Bell leads the G League in rebounding at 12.8, while scoring 10.8 points per game, and distributing at a very high rate for a big man, averaging 4.4 assists. According to an ESPN report, the 6'8" PF/C brings "versatility, energy and smarts" to any roster.

It's sort of a homecoming for Bell, as he was actually drafted by the Bulls in the 2nd round of the 2017 NBA Draft before being sold to the Warriors for "cash considerations."

Bell then rubbed it in in his first game against the Bulls as a member of the Warriors.

Bell posted an all-around game against the team that drafted him, with 7 points, 6 rebounds, 6 blocks and 4 assists. 

No hard feelings, apparently, as the Bulls are ready to give him a shot for real this time, on a hardship deal.
