Good signing for the amount.

For those folks that love using the stat PER, I think the Bulls are now the PER champions of the NBA. PER depth can't be matched.

Vucevic - 22 PER
Derozen - 22 PER
Lavine - 21 PER
Bradley - 20 PER
Dotson - 19 PER

Wow, amazing stuff.

Solid backup 5 for vet min? I'll take it. Honestly still hoping we can grab Birch too.

It's amazing how bad and utterly useless Felicio was. He had to be so bad for me to get excited about just this super minor signing. Yeah, I remember Bradley, he was one of the many backup C that had big game on our bigs last year.

Not necessarily, Bradley was just a vet min guy. If Lauri walks, we don't have any PFs. Other than DeRozan & Williams playing small ball 4 & Simonovic in his rookie year.

Doesn't be the same defensive impact as Birch, but not bad. Plays the way Rolo did for us

Not necessarily, it's only a minimum deal and we're still don't have many bigs. But I'd imagine Birch finds a team where he gets to play more at this point.

First thing I did was look at his defense. Looking at defensive WS, it looks like he was basically league average for the last 2 seasons which is fine. Just glad he's not a poor defensive player given our needs

I honestly don't think this has any impact on that. We still need another big on the bench. We may have to wait until after Friday to make a move on him as we may need the Theis S&T to be official before then. Not sure on that, but it could be a factor as he may be worth a bit more than the minimum deal.

Like the signing, but if he's so sneaky productive, cheap, and young why wouldn't OKC try to retain him? Seems odd

We need another one or two more big men to throw at Embiid in the playoff. Lauri doesn’t count.

So so so on fire right now. We need a backup big, so we go get a young one with the complementary skills we need..with upside..on the minimum.

Still would like to flip Lauri for an established shot blocker but cannot complain one iota about Bradley. Nailed it.

Solid pickup for a backup big for a cheap price. He’s only 23 years old.

Nice signing. Maybe OKC let him go without a fight as a sub rosa part of a Lauri S&T.

Doesn't have the "mystery box" upside of Marko and he seems a bit too...earth bound to be a lob catching rim runner ala Gafford. But he did abuse the hell out of WCJ vs us so maybe he's more of the bulldozer/rebounding type of big.

Isn't Marko signing with us?
