Chicago Bulls Reportedly Sign Oregon State’s Ethan Thompson to Exhibit 10 Contract

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls drafted one hell of an experienced player last night in Ayo Dosunmu, and the organization appears to have continued that trend once the clock stopped.

According to HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto, Chicago has signed Oregon State guard Ethan Thompson to an Exhibit 10 deal.

An Exhibit 10 contract allows for an organization to take a much closer look at a prospect without having to fully commit. In other words, it is a non-guaranteed contract that will give Karnisovas a chance to evaluate Thompson throughout Bulls’ training camp before deciding whether or not to hand him a roster spot. If he is signed to the Windy City Bulls after training camp, he could be in line for a sizable bonus if he stays with the team for at least 60 days (per SLAM).

Thompson played four years at Oregon State and is coming off easily his best season as a Beaver. The combo guard averaged a very solid 15.7 points, 3.9 assists, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game this season. He was a significant part of the Beavers’ unexpected run to the Elite 8, dropping 26 points and 7 rebounds in the team’s second-round victory over No. 1-overall pick Cade Cunningham’s squad. Overall, he has 127 college games (and starts) under his belt

Sam Vecenie ranked Thompson No. 99-overall on his Top-100 big board. As a streaky shooter and an average athlete, proving himself in the NBA will not be easy, but the Bulls prepare ready to give him that chance.
