Chicago Bulls starting point guard Lonzo Ball landed in the Windy City this offseason via a sign-and-trade from the New Orleans Pelicans. Ball has been an integral part of the Bulls turning things around and performing at a high level to begin the 2021-22 NBA season.

The Chicago Bulls are currently tied with the Miami Heat for the second-best record in the Eastern Conference with a record of 12-7. The addition of Ball is a big reason for that, as Chicago brass identified the point guard position as one that needed an upgrade and the former UCLA product was pinpointed as the player to acquire.

On the season Ball is averaging 12.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.7 steals in 34.9 minutes per game. He has developed into an excellent 3-point shooter, knocking down 43.8 percent of his attempts this season.

He has come a long way in terms of his shooting, as he struggled mightily in his first two seasons in the NBA. But, upon arriving in New Orleans, he began turning things around.
