The Chicago Bulls continued to add depth to their roster by signing guard Devon Dotson, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported late Friday night. The structure of the deal is a two-way qualifying offer. According to SpoTrac, Dotson’s contract will carry a $1,489,065 cap hit.
Dotson, a local Chicago product, joined the Bulls as an undrafted free agent on a two-way contract in 2020-21.
Dotson served as the third-string point guard for the Bulls last year. While he only appeared in 11 games averaging 2.1 points on 4.5 minutes, he saw substantial time in the G-League. There, he averaged 13 points, 5.5 assists, and 3.7 rebounds.
The Bulls still see a lot of promise in the undrafted Dotson due to his speed, shifty scoring ability, and court vision. Dotson will most likely see depth playing time alongside newcomers Ayo Dosunmu and Marko Simonovic. Both new additions will be able to help spread the floor and attack in transition with Dotson, which should result in Dotson’s numbers improving during his second NBA season.
Currently, Dotson is playing the Bulls in the NBA Summer League. The squad’s next game is Sunday at 9 PM Central vs. the Memphis Grizzles.
