Report: Derrick Walton Jr. signs with Chicago Bulls


#1

#2

Kind of surprised by this, but extremely good news for Derrick to be on a one-year deal, if it is guaranteed. That Bartelstein --> Chicago FO relationship surely helped in this case.


#3

Very deserving for as hard as he has worked to get there.


#4

Bartelstein is slowly becoming arguably the most influential agent in the NBA - and teams are more than willing to do him small favors - like taking a client at the league minimum into an empty roster spot - to curry favor.

(Also the Bulls backup PG spot is a nightmare and Walton probably has a very real shot at it)

Saw this on HoopsHype


#6

That seems more likely to be the case.


#7

FYI, his contract is non-guaranteed.
