Report: Chicago Bulls sign guard Andrew Funk to two-way contract

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Chicago Bulls have signed guard Andrew Funk to a two-way contract. Funk has spent this season with the Grand Rapids Gold, the Denver Nuggets’ G League team, and has been one of the best three-point shooters in the entire league.

In 20 games with the Gold, Funk averaged 13.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.5 assists while shooting 40.4% from the field and 39.6% from beyond the arc on 9.1 three-point attempts per game. The 24-year-old, 6-foot-5 guard went undrafted in the 2023 NBA Draft before signing on with the Gold. Now, he’ll have a chance to help the Bulls improve one of their biggest weaknesses – shooting.

Before entering the draft, Funk played four years of college ball at Bucknell before transferring to Penn State for a fifth and final year.

Funk emerged as a truly reliable three-point specialist during his one season with the Nittany Lions. He averaged 12.5 points and shot 41.2% from distance on 7.4 three-point attempts per contest.
