The ongoing theme here is shooting, as a team can simply never have too much shooting. For a Bulls squad deficient in 3-point shooting, Wayne Ellington would give the team a much-needed boost at a reduced cost.
Splitting 2018-19 between the Miami Heat and the Detroit Pistons, the former Tar Heel would be a welcome addition as a role player and veteran presence for Chicago. He could provide quality minutes behind Zach LaVine and would spread the floor, allowing Markkanen to operate.
Last season, Ellington averaged 10.3 points per game while shooting 37.1 percent from 3-point land per game. He’s a dangerous shooter, he has averaged at least 35 percent shooting from long range in all but one of his 10 NBA seasons.
Playing on a one-year deal worth $2.3 million last season, Ellington would be a solid bargain addition for the Chicago Bulls.
