Veteran Forward Ime Udoka Works Out With Bulls

K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports that six-year veteran Ime Udoka worked out for the Bulls yesterday at the team's practice facility." No contract offer was made," Johnson writes, "but it's possible Udoka, who spent last season with the Kings, could secure a training camp invitation."

Udoka fits the "three-and-d" small forward role most famously filled by Bruce Bowen, the former San Antonio Spur. A solid perimeter defender, Udoka can hit the open three-pointer on occasion, a sorely needed skill for Chicago. It is worrisome, though, that his three-point shooting has tumbled in each of the last four seasons, from a high of 40.6 percent in 2006/07 to an unseemly 28.6 percent last season.

The Bulls have 12 players under contract and have invited two more to training camp.
