Chicago Bulls Cutting Ties With Center

The Chicago Bulls made their big move to bring in some backcourt help on Monday, agreeing to sign newly-bought out Patrick Beverley, a Chicago native. That has created the need to clear a roster spot, and it appears the odd man out will be center Tony Bradley.

The rumor that had been making the rounds throughout the weekend was that if/when the Bulls added a guard from the buyout market, veteran Goran Dragic could be waived. But the recently well-traveled vet has earned a reprieve. 

Bradley didn't get much run with the Bulls this season, playing in just 12 games and less than three minutes per contest. But Bradley showed some real signs of promise with the Philadelphia 76ers just 2 years ago. In 20 games during the 2020-21 season, he averaged 5.5 points and 5.2 rebounds in 14.4 mins per game.  

As noted by Adrian Wojnarowski, there are still some teams around the league looking for a backup center. It's possible that the 25-year-old could still find some work this season.
