One Signed, One Waived: Chicago Bulls Swapping Out Forwards


It's been a busy day on the transaction front for the Chicago Bulls. Since agreeing to terms with Patrick Beverley on Monday, the team has made a flurry of moves. 

They've cut ties with a center, and now have swapped out forwards. 

The Bulls have waived two-way forward Malcolm Hill, while signing former Indiana Pacer Terry Taylor to a two-way to replace him.

Taylor, the 6'5" power forward, was waived by the Pacers at the trade deadline, but the Bulls have a vivid memory of what he did to them last season.

Per Bulls Insider KC Johnson, Taylor dominated Chicago with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists in a game last January. And that was a game after putting up 24 and 16 against Orlando. He finished the year averaging 9.6 points and 5.2 rebounds in about 20 minutes per game. 

But this season, Taylor couldn't find his way back into coach Rick Carlisle's rotation, playing just nine minutes per game in 26 contests. The Bulls are happy to take him in. 

Hill, a 6'6" swingman, was barely a factor at all for Chicago this season, playing just nine minutes total over five games.
