A return to a place where the veteran Spurs shooting guard Marco Belinelli played for one season, back during the 2012-13 campaign, could be an interesting move.
Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has to love the idea of adding a project point guard like Kris Dunn that has room to grow but is also stout defensively. The biggest holdup to Dunn landing with the Spurs could fall along the lines of his scheme fit and adjusting to a different style of play in San Antonio.
However, last season Belinelli registered 10.5 points per game, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.7 assists with a player efficiency rating hovering around 13.0 and shooting better than 37 percent from three-point range. Belinelli fills two big needs for Boylen and the Bulls and he could do it while coming off the bench.
By no means is Belinelli a potential starter for a team like the Bulls that has a standout small forward like Otto Porter Jr. and shooting guard like Zach LaVine. But Belinelli can space the floor and contribute on both ends for Boylen. That’s about all you can ask for as a short-term solution for the Bulls while offloading Dunn.
