Bulls waive last year’s starter Keith Bogans

Dec 16, 2011, 7:55 PM EDT


Keith Bogans started all 82 games for the Chicago Bulls as the shooting guard. Well he was the shooting guard who did not shoot — he averaged just 3.7 shots per game (and 4.4 points) He got the call because he played good defense and stayed out of Derrick Rose’s way.

The Bulls were willing to sacrifice some of that defense to get more offense out of the position this season, hence the signing of Rip Hamilton earlier this week.

Which made Bogans expendable, so he was waived, according to Ronnie Brewer will be the backup for Hamilton.

Expect the Bulls to use the slot to add an inexpensive big man just to provide a little depth along the back line. Bogans will be a free agent if he clears waivers (as expected).

    Good luck to him.

    He was a solid player and always played with intensity.

    I’m not really surprised to by the move since the Bulls already have a handful of guards (Hamilton, Brewer, Korver, Butler).

    A small fun fact about him though, is the Bulls were 26-2 when he scored over 6pts in a game. The good thing about that is they were virtually unbeatable when he gets some points on his stats sheet. The bad this is in a 82 game season, he scored over 6 points only 28 times. Just not enough to be the starting SG on a championship caliber team.

    Nonetheless, I wish him the best.
