Bulls sign Stone to two-year contract

Diamond Stone appeared in seven games with the Clippers as a rookie.

Free agent big man Diamond Stone has signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Bulls, according to a report from Chris Reichert of 2 Ways & 10 Days.

The deal is partially guaranteed, Reichert reported.

Stone is 6-foot-11 and spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers as a rookie. He appeared in just seven games, and was traded to the Atlanta Hawks as part of the Jamal Crawford deal in July. Like Crawford, Stone was promptly waived.

Stone spent one year at Maryland before declaring for the draft. He was selected by the New Orleans Pelicans with the No. 40 overall pick and immediately traded to the Clippers.

He played for the Santa Cruz Warriors and Salt Lake City Stars last season in the G League.

Robin Lopez, Nikola MiroticCristiano FelicioBobby Portis and first-round pick Lauri Markkanen are the other big men currently on the Bulls’ roster.
