The Chicago Bulls could sign veteran point guard Emmanuel Mudiay

One of the younger available options for the Bulls would be former seventh overall pick Emmanuel Mudiay. He was originally drafted by the Denver Nuggets back in the 2015 NBA Draft and is still only 25 years old.

The unfortunate part about Mudiay is that he was never as good as his rookie season. Mudiay’s rookie campaign saw him make the All NBA Rookie 2nd Team after averaging 12.8 points, 5.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game while starting 66 games for Denver.

Back in 2018-2019, Mudiay did average a career-best 14.8 points per game with the New York Knicks, but his best season as a pro, overall, still came as a rookie.

Mudiay’s last full season came during 2019-2020 with the Utah Jazz. He did sign a 10-day contract with the Sacramento Kings earlier this season and appeared in two games.

Mudiay would be more of a facilitator type for the Bulls. He’s not necessarily a prolific scoring point guard. He is an above average passer and defender, though.
