RE: Kilpatrick
Killa had a really strong end to his season playing for the Bulls. Averaged 18 ppg in the month of April while shooting nearly 50% from 3 pt range. Hopefully his late season performance motivates the Bulls to take his two year contract option.

Eerily similar situation and numbers to when he was given a full run-out by the Nets at the end of the 15-16 season. Got him a contract with them, and I'm guessing it will have the Bulls pick up his option for this next year as well. He's an extremely cheap bench scorer on the option they'd have him for...especially given that they're in full rebuild. His defensive numbers are still really bad though...

RE: Kilpatrick
Why does everyone keep knocking his defense? When he was at UC, I always thought his defense was better than his offense (he was merely a volume scorer on offense - those are a dime a dozen).

(1) He became a solid college defender.
(2) The idea that his defense was better than his offense is insane.
(3) He's a below average NBA defender (and that may be generous) and the numbers back that up.

He's a 6'4 shooting guard with limited athleticism. Not a lot of guys for him to guard.

RE: Kilpatrick
I went to the last Bulls game of the season (he got the start) and he definitely got burned badly a few times on defense. Some may be just due to unfamiliarity with the defensive scheme with a new team, but some definitely was him losing his guy. That said, some of the scrubs they had playing looked worse on defense and couldn't hit the broadside of a barn on offense. Bulls had at least 3 starters out of action that night which led to a lot of PT for players who normally don't get it.

On O, he looked pretty solid. Some standing around positioning for a jumper and some nice drives. He did make quit an impression over 2 weeks - particularly that 19 point 4th quarter game which got some of the press here to notice (hard to ignore when the Bulls were trying to lose for draft position and one guy won't let it happen). So hopefully the Bulls keep him on.

Well, that was a cool $2m for a few months worked...SK was just waived by the Bulls.

"Kilpatrick had signed a three-year deal in March, but the last two years were non-guaranteed team option years, which means the Bulls aren't on the hook for any of his remaining salary."

With a non-guaranteed contract, you had to see this coming.

Hope he catches on somewhere else this year.

With each new draft one has to wonder if his time in the NBA is coming to a close. I suspect he could continue his career overseas for several more years and bank a lot of money. He's an all-time great Bearcat and I think we all wish him the very best.

I too think he's nearing the end of the road in the NBA. Volume scorer with soon to be aging skills. His percentages are average, at best.

Never mind that though, to your point, the overseas markets will suit him well. Hopefully he's being wise with his earned income.
