Bulls say goodbye to Bogans

After adding Richard Hamilton on Thursday, the Bulls decided to waive veteran shooting guard Keith Bogans.

Bogans started all 82 games last season, averaging 4.4 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.8 minutes per game. He also provided a solid defensive presence while being asked to guard the oppositions best perimeter player the majority of the time.

Ronnie Brewer, who will start the preseason opener in Indianapolis Friday night, will still serve as the main backup.

Bogans was due to make 1.7 million in 2011-12 and the Bulls can re-sign him to a cheaper contract if he clears waivers. The Bulls might be looking to add a veteran center or power forward with the money as a replacement for Kurt Thomas, who signed with the Portland Trail Blazers earlier in the week.

The Bulls also waived guard Jannero Pargo, who spent 14 games on the inactive list after signing on March 20. He did not appear in a game last season.

CSNChicago.com will have more on this story including reaction from head coach Tom Thibodeau and Bulls players when it is made available.

Coby White, Bulls will square off against Zion Williamson, Pelicans in Las Vegas Summer League

Coby White, Bulls will square off against Zion Williamson, Pelicans in Las Vegas Summer League

Coby White and Zion Williamson know each other well, having squared off on three separate occasions last season in the Duke-North Carolina rivalry.

While will get another chance against Williamson during the Las Vegas Summer League, as the Bulls will face the New Orleans Pelicans on July 8.

The Bulls announced their full Las Vegas Summer League schedule on Friday, which consists of our preliminary round games.

July 5, 6:30 p.m. - Bulls vs. Lakers
July 7, 6:30 p.m. - Bulls vs. Cavaliers
July 8, 8:30 p.m. - Bulls vs. Pelicans
July 10, 4 p.m. - Bulls vs. Hornets

For those hoping to see a battle of the second and third point guards taken in Thursday's draft, they'll have to wait until the regular season. The Cavaliers selected Vanderbilt's Darius Garland with the fifth pick, but he won't play in Summer League as he recovers from meniscus surgery he underwent in November.

The Bulls will square off against two other first-round picks that Cleveland selected in Belmont's Dylan Windler and USC's Kevin Porter Jr.

The big story against the Pelicans will be Williamson vs. White, but the Pelicans were busy on draft night in selecting Texas center Jaxson Hayes - who the Bulls were reportedly interested in - and Virginia Tech's Nickeil Alexander-Walker.

There's a hometown twist when the Bulls square off against the Lakers. Los Angeles selected Simeon Academy product Talen Horton-Tucker in the second round and also signed fellow Simeon product and Gonzaga standout Zach Norvell as an undrafted free agent.

The Hornets drafted Kentucky forward P.J. Washington with the 12th pick and added Nevada's Cody Martin and San Diego State's Jalen McDaniels in Round 2.

The top eight teams from the round robin will advance to the knockout round. The Bulls' Summer League roster will be finalized in the coming days, but it will obviously include White and second-round pick Daniel Gafford.
