|Lonzo Ball: Gets to Bulls in sign-and-trade|
Ball has agreed to a four-year, $85 million deal with the Bulls in a sign-and-trade with the Pelicans. Chicago will send Tomas Satoransky, Garrett Temple and a second-round pick to New Orleans, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Scoop: The Bulls continue to push into win-now mode, inking Ball to a significant contract after trading for Nikola Jokic at the deadline last season. Ball is coming off a nice two-year stint with the Pelicans in which he averaged 13.1 points, 6.4 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 32.0 minutes per game. He also made 2.7 threes per contest at a 37.6 percent clip. He should play a similar role with the Bulls as the team's starting point guard, helping facilitate the ball to talented scorers Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic.
