Isn't Marko signing with us?


I think folks are viewing him like most 2nd round draft picks - a DNP to 8 min level deep, deep reserve until he proves otherwise.

A young guy fighting for his NBA career, I can approve of such a signing.

It's pretty amazing that a majority of players we could have signed for this back up C role all torched us at some point last season haha

Welcome to the Bulls T.Brad!
Look, it's not in my nature to be mysterious. But I can't talk about it and I can't talk about why.

Good comparison of usage. Good energy player, solid d, can score, take up space and rebound. Solid backup at C and elite if 3rd backup C. Good pickup for minimum.

Even if we grabbed Birch first we would still need depth in the front court.
We have Vuc and Lauri at the moment. You add in Bradley and he's your back up C. Even if you don't move Lauri you still need someone who can be your PF in a bigger lineup.

We need resolution on Laurie situation first. I honestly hope they just rescind the offer but that's not their style.
This is not a moment, it's a movement

How exciting to pay a backup center what a backup center should be paid if you are constructing your roster correctly. To go from four years of Felicio to this feels better than it should because it's just baseline competency.

But he's only 23 and has massive upside, should've given him 4 years $60 mill

If he protects the lane and rebounds for the second unit that's all he needs to do with Coby, Brown, Markkanen, Caruso to shoot the ball

What a signing! Marc & Artie just keep on slaying this off-season

I could've predicted all of this, it was obvious that they were going to alter the landscape of the team & do huge things this off-season, and they've surpassed all expectations, whilst still retaining a great deal of high upside youth

Bradley is not only exactly what the present roster needed, but he's young & still has considerable upside left to mine

Vooch/Bradley/Marko can be a helluva C rotation!

Another thing that strikes me besides the lofty PERs strewn about the starting 5, is the overall SIZE of this team. Nearly everyone on the squad is tall & long.

Two things I know about Tony Bradley: 1. He was in the Lonzo Ball draft and he 2. He went ten picks before Jordan Bell.

I like it, good backup C, who isnt liability on defensive end and still young with upside.

Just a meme from the days when NYK landed Amare.
