Bulls plan to add second two-way contract player, not going to claim a player off waivers

The Chicago Bulls are looking to add another player to its roster via a Two-Way Contract, according to recent reporting from K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago:

Apparently, the team isn’t looking to dip into the waiver wire and will instead likely waive Shaquille Harrison in order to transfer his contract to a more permanent Two-Way fixture in the team’s roster. According to Spotrac, the Bulls already have one of their Two-Way Contracts wrapped up in 21-year-old French guard prospect Adam Mokoka.

While the waiver wire might be an attractive option for the Bulls, especially considering the Golden State Warriors just waived versatile wing Alfonzo McKinnie, it seems that Bulls Head Coach Jim Boylen would rather keep the signing “in house” with Harrison being the frontrunner, according to Johnson’s reporting:

The Bulls have already had quite the action-packed offseason, which began with drafting high-upside young point guard Coby White out of North Carolina at #7 overall, and then immensely athletic big man Daniel Gafford in the second round.

Beyond that, the Bulls added veteran point guard Tomas Satoransky via a sign-and-trade with the Washington Wizards, who has been subsequently named the starting point guard ahead of White and Kris Dunn. Burly wing veteran Thaddeus Young was also poached from the Indiana Pacers via a 3-year/$41 million deal in the offseason.

With all of those roster moves already in the offing, the Bulls are pretty much set with their roster save for that one extra Two-Way spot. Time will tell how they spend that last roster spot.
