1. Signed Torrey Craig
Signed free agent forward Torrey Craig to a 2-year, $5.37 million contract
The Chicago Bulls had a lot of rotation guards last season, even without Lonzo Ball being able to play with his chronic knee injury. Where they struggled was fielding forwards, with their bench frontcourt consisting of an overmatched Derrick Jones Jr. and lots of minutes of guards downshifting to play the 3 or even 4.
The Bulls addressed that need by signing Torrey Craig in free agency to what is essentially a two-year minimum contract. When the Bulls are fully healthy he is unlikely to start over Patrick Williams, but he can capably back up DeMar DeRozan and Williams at both forward positions.
Craig played last season with the Phoenix Suns and was a critical rotation player on a good team, starting 60 games and shooting 39.5 percent from deep while playing solid defense. His shakier free-throw shooting and overall career number (just 34.7 from deep) made defenses comfortable not guarding him, but if he can continue shooting at an above-average level that respect from defenses will come around and help space the court.
