It looks like Tyler Ulis has found his next NBA home.
After being waived by the Golden State Warriors, Ulis has reportedly been claimed by the Chicago Bulls.

It’s actually going to turn into a two-way contract, which means Ulis will spend a lot of time in the G-League but still get to play regular-season minutes in Chicago.

This is a good switch for Ulis, who was unlikely to get many, if any minutes with Golden State if he remained there. The Bulls, however, are a rebuilding roster that Ulis could find a bigger role with.
Ulis, who has been searching for a new home after being waived by the Warriors this weekend, finished the 2017-18 season fifth in total minutes played for the Phoenix Suns, but he finished third in assists per game for the league’s worst assisting team.
Still, with a career average of 7.6 points and 4.1 assists per contest, it’s too soon to for the NBA to give up on Ulis. He may not be able to last in the league long term, but he’s still worthy of a chance to carve out a career with someone.
Let’s hope it’s with the Bulls.
