Dio's tour of the league pulls off in the Central Division, where some young players could be looking at additional opportunities for teams that are looking to take a step forward.
July 8, 2020, 10:04 amAdam MokokaG, Chicago Bulls
In his first year with the Bulls, French guard Adam Mokoka appeared in just 11 contests, scoring 2.9 points in 10.2 minutes per game, good for 436/424 value in 8/9-cat scoring formats.
The 21-year-old guard signed a two-way contract last summer and spent most of his 2019-20 campaign with the Windy City Bulls in the G League, averaging 10.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.8 triples and 1.4 steals. He is someone the Bulls really liked since the 2019 Draft and he proved he can be a defensive minded guard who can shoot from long range. It’s likely that he remains with the Bulls next year as well, but we’ll have to wait and see whether he has impressed the coaching staff enough to get a promotion to the first team.

The Bulls have sent Adam Mokoka to the Windy City Bulls of the G League.
Mokoka actually got some reasonable playing time off the bench, averaging 17.8 minutes in five NBA games since being recalled. He's not a fantasy factor, though.

Adam Mokoka has been called up by the Bulls ahead of Saturday's game against the Suns.
Mokoka will provide emergency depth for the Bulls but has only appeared in six games for them thus far at 3.6 minutes per so not much is expected here. For what it's worth, the undrafted rookie wing is averaging 10.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.6 triples in the G League this season with a 37.5/31.8/70.0 shooting line.

Adam Mokoka went off in the final three minutes on Thursday, scoring 15 points on 6-of-6 shooting to go with three triples.
Mokoka didn't add anything else to his stat line except points and triples and all of his work was done in garbage time. The Bulls were down 18 points with less than three minutes to go and Mokoka went superhero mode, making every shot he took. Obviously none of this will stick, but he deserves some recognition for the heroic effort.
February 6, 2020, 10:20 pmRyan ArcidiaconoPG, Chicago Bulls
Ryan Arcidiacono came off the bench on Thursday and scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting while adding four boards, four dimes, two steals and three triples.
Arcidiacono produced a well-rounded line in limited minutes and we've seen this before, which is why it's not going to grab our attention. Coby White (31 minutes, 14 points, 5-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, nine assists and two triples) also scored a decent amount, but the inefficiencies and stat set are holding us back from jumping the gun here. The only reason his assist numbers look so good tonight were because teammate Adam Mokoka popping off in the last two minutes, making all six of his shots.

Adam Mokoka will be active for the Bulls on Monday against the Bucks.
Mokoka has averaged 9.5 points and 5.7 points for the Windy City Bulls of the G League. He's just a depth player for now.

Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) is probable to play on Wednesday.
Markkanen was able to play on Monday after being listed as doubtful that morning, so this isn't all that surprising. Daniel Gafford (left ankle sprain), Ryan Arcidiacono (right elbow) and Adam Mokoka (eye) are also probable but not expected to miss any time.

The Bulls are signing G Adam Mokoka to a two-way contract per Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic.
The 6’5″ French guard went undrafted this year after withdrawing from the 2018 NBA Draft. He should get his feet wet in the NBA Summer League and will provide some depth to the Bulls’ guard rotation should he find himself on the roster. Mokoka can be ignored in fantasy circles for now.
