The Chicago Bulls are planning to sign forward Jordan Bell to a 10-day hardship deal. Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium first reported the deal.
In wake of the news that Marko Simonovic entered the NBA's health and safety protocols, it is no surprise the Bulls signed a forward/center on a hardship deal.
Bell's career has come full circle. The Bulls drafted him in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft. However, he never played for the team that drafted him as the Bulls traded Bell to the Warriors for cash considerations.
Bell played a key role off the bench during his rookie season as the Warriors won their most recent championship. However, Bell found himself amidst some controversy when the Warriors suspended him for one game due to "conduct detrimental to the team."
Bell signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves as a restricted free agent during the 2019 offseason. He made only 27 appearances for Minnesota before being traded to the Rockets and subsequently, the Memphis Grizzlies.
Overall, Bell has career averages of 3.7 PPG, 3.1 RPG, and 1.3 APG on 55% shooting.
