Former Kansas point guard Devon Dotson has been waived by the Chicago Bulls, the NBA team announced Monday on Twitter.

Dotson, 22, who was not selected in the 2020 NBA Draft after playing two seasons at KU, spent his rookie season in 2020-21 on a two-way deal with the Bulls. He signed a new two-way contract for the 2021-22 season.

He averaged 2.6 points and 1.4 assists in 11 games with the Bulls this season, averaging 7.7 minutes in those 11 games. He also played 11 games with the Bulls in 2020-21.

The 6-foot-1 Dotson was born in Chicago then moved to Charlotte, North Carolina for his high school years.

Dotson, according to hoopsrumors.com, will clear waivers on Wednesday, assuming he is not claimed by another team, then will be free to sign with any team at that time.

He figures to be picked up after averaging 20.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game in 10 games this season for the G League’s Windy City Bulls.

Dotson’s release paves the way for the Bulls to sign forward Malcolm Hill to a two-way contract. That move was announced by Shams Charania of The Athletic.
