Chicago Bulls Rumors
Ira Winderman: Former Heat guard Derrick Walton Jr. has signed with the Bulls. The Heat pulled his qualifying offer in July, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Mike McGraw: Told Derrick Walton Jr. signing with #Bulls is a training camp addition. Not likely to make team, but you never know. Former Michigan PG was two-way for Miami last season.
Barry Jackson: Derrick Walton Jr., one of the Heat’s two-way players last season, intends to sign with the Chicago Bulls, agent Mark Bartelstein told me. Walton played with the Heat in summer league in July.
Bobby Portis, LaVine’s teammate with the Bulls, summed it up. “We’d rather play booray than go out to the club,” he said. “It really makes you lock in and think. We play that game probably three, four times a week. We play it on the road, play at homes, we’ll sit for four, five, six hours and play it.” “It gets heated, because there’s money on the line,” he added. “If you get booed, it’s like a gut punch.”
