5. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has been an interesting piece for the Bulls this season. He came to the Windy City in a trade on February 1 that saw “TLC” and cash head to Chicago in exchange for a protected 2020 second round pick.

Ultimately, this was a good move for the Bulls. They were able to take a flyer on a former first-round pick that hadn’t been given a real chance to succeed yet in the NBA. Plus, the Bulls were in need of a versatile wing.

TLC’s time with the Bulls hasn’t been sensational, but it hasn’t been terrible either. With the Bulls, he’s averaging 4 points per game on extremely rough .314/.289/.692 shooting splits. He’s been shockingly inefficient, but his length and versatility on the wing have still given the Bulls a nice weapon off the bench.

Luwawu-Cabarrot is long, he can shoot the three-ball (his horrendous percentage isn’t an accurate reflection of his shooting ability) and he works hard. He probably won’t be a star in this league – he probably won’t even be a starter – but he’s still a guy who can come in and give you solid minutes.
