Patrick Beverley To Sign With Eastern Conference Team

Free agent point guard Patrick Beverley has made a decision on his next destination, as he said today that it came down to a choice between the Golden State Warriors and the Chicago Bulls. He ultimately chose to go home.

Beverley was born in Chicago, and now in his 11th NBA season, he'll finally get the chance to play in his hometown.

He spent the first 10 years of his career playing for the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Los Angeles Lakers, the latter of whom shipped him off in a trade to the Orlando Magic at the trade deadline. He has since arranged for his buyout. 

Beverley, 34, will be a free agent this summer. He's averaged 6.4 points and 3.4 rebounds per game with the Lakers this season, but his hallmark is his aggressive, tenacious defense.

And it seems Pat Bev had a premonition about this day eventually coming to fruition, before his career began, way back in 2012. 

Before he even began his NBA career, he tweeted "Just got this feeling, I want to play for the Bulls!!! Do I see NBA next year???"

The Bulls add some depth to the backcourt, as it's becoming more and more evident that Lonzo Ball will not be returning to the floor this season.
