Bulls Converting Carlik Jones’ Two-Way Contract to a Full-Time Roster Spot
Carlik Jones is moving up the ranks.
Only a couple of months after he earned himself one of the Chicago Bulls’ two-way contract spots, Jones is set to receive another promotion. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the Bulls are finalizing a deal to convert Jones to a full-time roster spot for the remainder of the season. The announcement comes only a couple of days after the organization opened up a roster spot due to waiving veteran guard Goran Dragic.
The announcement also comes only hours after Jones was named the G-League player of the month for February. He averaged an impressive 27.5 points per game to go along with 8.1 assists through eight games last month.

Overall, the expectation should be that Jones receives little playing time as the Bulls’ continue their push for the postseason. But there is no question that he earned himself this full-time spot on an NBA roster. He’s been one of the G-League’s best scorers all season long, and this new opportunity will only give the Bulls’ front office a greater opportunity to evaluate his potential as they look toward next season.
Congrats to Carlik!
