The Chicago Bulls are walking away from the oft-injured Omer Asik, announcing they had waived the center on Sunday. Asik hadn’t played for the Bulls this season after he was ruled out indefinitely with inflammatory arthritis in September. Asik’s $11.3 million salary for 2018-19 was fully guaranteed, and he is owed $3 million for next season as a partial guarantee. The Bulls would owe him the full $14.3 million unless a team claims him off waivers, which is unlikely.
