Bulls signing guard Ulis to two-way pact

The Bulls are signing guard Tyler Ulis (8) to a two-way deal.

The Chicago Bulls claimed point guard Tyler Ulis off waivers Sunday and are signing him to a two-way contract, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.

Ulis was waived by the Golden State Warriors on Friday. The Warriors had signed him to an Exhibit 10 deal Sept. 21.

The Phoenix Suns waived the 22-year-old Ulis on June 30.

The 5-foot-10, 150-pound Kentucky product averaged 7.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 23.4 minutes in 71 games (43 starts) for the Suns last season, shooting just 40 percent from the floor and 28 percent on 3-pointers. Ulis was drafted by the Suns with the No. 34 overall pick in 2016. He was due to make $1.54 million before the Suns declined the option and sent him into free agency.

Sources had told Amico Hoops in September that Ulis would have liked to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who brought him in for a workout, but a deal never came to fruition.
