Report: Bulls waive point guard Spencer Dinwiddie

Report: Bulls waive point guard Spencer Dinwiddie

Spencer Dinwiddie's brief tenure as a member of the Bulls has come to an end.

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Bulls have waived the 23-year-old point guard.

The Bulls acquired Dinwiddie from the Detroit Pistons for power forward Cameron Bairstow back on June 17. Coincidentally, the Pistons will release Bairstow after signing San Antonio Spurs center Boban Marjanovic to an offer sheet on Thursday.

Dinwiddie, a second round pick out of the University of Colorado in 2014, averaged 4.4 points, 2.7 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 13.3 minutes in a reserve role for the Pistons the past two seasons.

Dinwiddie's release comes in a series of roster moves for the Bulls over the past 24 hours.

The Bulls officially announced the signing of Rajon Rondo earlier Thursday. The Bulls also have a two-year agreement with Dwyane Wade, but the deal won't become official until the trades of Mike Dunleavy to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Jose Calderon to the Los Angeles Lakers are complete.

Ironically, Dinwiddie tweeted about Wade joining the Bulls on Wednesday night.

Bulls forward Thaddeus Young invited to USA Basketball training camp for 2019 FIBA World Cup

Bulls forward Thaddeus Young invited to USA Basketball training camp for 2019 FIBA World Cup

Thaddeus Young could don one more different jersey before he hits the court with the Bulls for the first time.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, Young has been invited to participate in USA Basketball's training camp roster for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

Team USA has seen several star NBA players withdraw their name for consideration from the team in recent days, including Wizards guard Bradley Beal and 76ers forward Tobias Harris. Thus, there is at least a small chance that Young makes the final roster, which would be the fourth-straight World Cup in which a Bull plays for Team USA

Derrick Rose donned the stars and stripes in both 2010 and 2014, following Kirk Hinrich in 2006 and Jay Williams in 2002. Perhaps Bulls guard Zach LaVine will be the next player to receive an invite?
