The Chicago Bulls won their opener against the Dallas Mavericks by a single point and followed that up with a blowout loss to the New York Knicks. The Bulls won their last game against the Toronto Raptors and now face the Hornets in their last game.

The Bulls’ roster for the Summer League is highlighted by their 2022 NBA Draft selection Dalen Terry. He’s put up decent numbers so far, combining 36 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds in three games.

.@DalenTerry was asked by longtime Bulls reporter and “Jordan Rules” author Sam Smith why he wasn’t chasing shots in his NBA debut. “I was playing basketball. … I am a basketball player. With the way I play, I don’t need to score 30 points to influence the game.”

Key player – Marko Simonovic

Marko Simonovic is playing towards a place on the roster this summer and will likely get the 15th man role or continue his two-way deal.

He was selected by the Bulls in the 2020 NBA Draft as the 44th overall pick and had excellent numbers in the Summer League. He was down 27 points in 29 minutes, shooting 10-19 from the field with 13 rebounds and three blocks against Dallas.

Marko Simonovic led the @ChicagoBulls to victory while losing 27 points, including the tying bucket and winning free throw in OT!🔥 27 PTS | 13 RECs | 3BLK

Charlotte Hornets Preview

The Charlotte Hornets are an interesting team in the Summer League, as they have a bunch of young talent. They lost their first game to the Indiana Pacers but won the next two games against the LA Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kai Jones has put up incredible numbers so far in Vegas. He went 0-10 from beyond the arc in the opener and then stopped trying for three points altogether. He showed his rebound and athleticism this summer, however, and many are gushing on his game.

The Hornets also introduced LiAngelo Ball, the brother of starting point guard LaMelo Ball, to their summer squad. He didn’t put any numbers in the opener, but busted for 12 points in as many minutes in the last game. He is probably expected to get a two-way deal or 15th on the roster.

Key Player – Bryce McGowens
