Chicago Bulls waive guard Sean Kilpatrick

Sean Kilpatrick

The Chicago Bulls announced via Twitter that Sean Kilpatrick has been waived by the team. The Cincinnati product only played nine games with Chicago, the fourth team he played on during the 2017-18 NBA season.

The White Plains native played extremely well during his short tenure in Chicago. Kilpatrick averaged 15.4 points per game on 44 percent shooting. He also shot nearly 40 percent from three.

Kilpatrick has bounced around the league during his four-year career. The 28-year-old has not been able to latch on anywhere in the NBA for much longer than a season. His longest tenure was near his hometown when he played 109 games over three seasons with the Brooklyn Nets.

Along with the Bulls, Kilpatrick played for the Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, and Los Angeles Clippers last season. He played 16 games for Brooklyn, 23 for Milwaukee, and four for L.A.

Kilpatrick has averaged 10.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game for this career. He’s not a star by any stretch, but he’s not a bad guy to have on the roster for added depth.

Kilpatrick can certainly be a solid guy at the end of the bench. As seen by his short time in Chicago, he is capable of stepping in at a moment’s notice and providing instant offense.

At this point in his career, Kilpatrick is probably nothing more than a depth guy that can play in a pinch, but that’s not a bad spot to be in. At the very least, he’ll continue to get opportunities to try and prove that he can be something more.
