|Lonzo Ball: Expected to debut Tuesday|
Ball is expected to make his Bulls debut in Tuesday's preseason game against the Cavaliers, NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The Scoop: While a number of veterans around the league have already been ruled out of their respective preseason openers, Ball will be on the floor Tuesday as the Bulls look to build chemistry with their new core, which also features Nikola Vucevic, Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan. Coach Billy Donovan has spoken highly of his new starting point guard, whose passing will be valued on a roster that features a number of score-first players. "He loves to play," Donovan said of Ball. "I think he'll continue to get better at getting to the basket, finishing at the rim, getting to the free-throw line. He's really cerebral. He's got great awareness. I've always said this about him: He's a guy I think guys enjoy playing with because of the way he passes."
