The Chicago Bulls have signed free agent center Daniel Oturu to a training camp deal. This move comes days after the Bulls revealed that second-year forward Patrick Williams sustained an ankle injury.
Oturu, a second-round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, appeared in 30 games for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2020-21. He averaged 1.8 PPG and 1.6 RPG in 5.4 minutes per game. The Bulls must see some potential in the 6-foot-8 center. The depth down low has been a concern since the offseason started, so this could end up being a low-risk signing. The Bulls preseason roster currently sits at 20. Though, the Bulls only have 13 guaranteed contracts heading into the 2021-22 season.
