Luke Kornet reportedly agrees to 2-year deal with Bulls

Free agent forward/center Luke Kornet has agreed to a two-year deal with the Chicago Bulls, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Kornet fills a need for a backup stretch big for Chicago as he shot 36.3% from three in 2018-19. The big man will battle with rookie Daniel Gafford for backup minutes behind starting center Wendell Carter Jr.

Kornet averaged 7.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, 0.9 blocks, and 1.5 three-pointers in 17.0 minutes per game with the New York Knicks last season.
