  • Sean Kilpatrick: Signs deal overseas

    Kilpatrick has agreed to a deal with Panathinaikos, George Orfanakis of reports.

    Kilpatrick was released by the Bulls over the summer, so he'll travel overseas to play under Rick Pitino in the EuroLeague. Kilpatrick's most successful year of NBA action came in 2016 when he averaged 13.1 points, 4.0 boards and 2.2 assists over 70 games with Brooklyn.

  • Sean Kilpatrick: Waived by Chicago

    Kilpatrick was waived by the Bulls on Thursday.

    Kilpatrick bounced around the NBA last season, seeing short stints with the likes of the Nets, Clippers, Bucks and Bulls. However, he ended the season with Chicago, who gave him a multi-year contract after he averaged 15.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 2.1 three-pointers across the final nine games of the season. Despite the strong finish, the Bulls are looking to open up a roster spot and Kilpatrick's contract for the 2018-19 campaign wasn't guaranteed, so he's been released. Look for the 28-year-old guard to try and latch on elsewhere as a depth option in the backcourt, though no matter where he lands, Kilpatrick is unlikely to become fantasy relevant.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Strong finish to season

    Kilpatrick managed 6.3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.9 assists over 52 games played with the Nets, Clippers, Bucks and Bulls in 2017-18.

    Kilpatrick bounced around during his fourth NBA season but found a home with the Bulls late in the year. The 27-year-old finished the season strong as he scored in double-figures in nine of the last 10 games and was arguably the Bulls' best player during the streak. It's up to the Bulls if they want to keep Kilpatrick though, as he has a team option of around $2 million for next year.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Scores 14 points in start

    Kilpatrick tallied 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 119-87 loss to Detroit.

    Kilpatrick finished off the season with another good performance, scoring in double-figures for the seventh consecutive game. He has been arguably the Bulls most consistent player over the last two weeks and has certainly earned himself some consideration for making the roster next season.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Starting season finale

    Kilpatrick will start Wednesday's game against Detroit, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.

    The 28-year-old journeyman will move into the starting five in place of Justin Holiday as the Bulls play what's ultimately a meaningless game against a fellow non-playoff opponent. Kilpatrick has been productive off the bench of late, averaging 19.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.8 made threes over his last five contests.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Racks up 20 points off bench

    Kilpatrick accounted for 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 22 minutes in Saturday's 124-96 loss to the Nets.

    Kilpatrick once again paced the Bulls in scoring off the bench, generating his third straight 20-point tally in the process. The 28-year-old is shooting an impressive 49.1 percent on a robust average of 14.3 shot attempts in four April contests, and he's displaying the same type of aggressiveness on offense that he often did while during the prior two seasons in particular with the Nets. Kilpatrick's scoring contributions and solid allotment of playing time (24.8 minutes in four April games) makes him an appealing DFS play as the Bulls finish out their final two games of the season.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Leads team with 24 points Friday

    Kilpatrick totaled 24 points (8-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 111-104 loss to the Celtics.

    Kilpatrick finished with a season-high 24 points including five triples. The Bulls have no real incentive to play any one guard over the other and so as long as Kilpatrick is shooting the ball well, he should be able to see a nice amount of playing time. He is worth a look if you need points but beware, he doesn't offer much outside of scoring.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Drops 21 off bench Tuesday

    Kilpatrick scored 21 points (7-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding three assists and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 120-114 win over the Hornets.

    The journeyman has turned into a key member of the Bulls' second unit over the last three games, averaging 16.0 points, 3.3 boards, 2.3 assists and 2.3 three-pointers in 26.0 minutes over the last three games. Given all the injuries in Chicago's backcourt, it seems likely that Kilpatrick will continue seeing a larger workload than expected over the team's final four games.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Scores 13 points despite poor shooting

    Kilpatrick produced 13 points (2-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes during a 90-82 win over the Magic on Friday.

    Despite struggling with his shot, Kilpatrick had his best game since being acquired by the team. He was able to overcome the poor shooting by getting to the free throw line a season-high eight times. Kilpatrick looks like he's going to try to get plenty of shots up to close out the season, but he's nothing more than low-end streaky scorer.

  • Bulls' Sean Kilpatrick: Signs multi-year contract with Bulls

    Kilpatrick will sign a three-year, $6.2 million contract with the Bulls, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

    Kilpatrick has spent time with the Nets, Clippers and Bucks this season, but was unable to stick around long-term with any of those organizations. He'll now head to Chicago on what is essentially deal to keep him around for the rest of the 2017-18 season. The Nets then hold team options for the next two years, which means Kilpatrick will have to show some upside for the last few weeks of this season and throughout training camp next year in order to stick on the roster. Look for Kilpatrick to offer depth in the backcourt, especially with the likes of Kris Dunn (toe), Zach LaVine (knee) and Antonio Blakeney (wrist) all out.

  • Sean Kilpatrick: Won't sign with Celtics after all

    A complication has emerged in Kilpatrick's negotiation process with the Celtics, and he's no longer expected to sign a 10-day deal with the team, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.

    Kilpatrick was set to join the Celtics earlier Saturday, but the former Cincinnati standout has apparently received a more appealing offer from another NBA team, so for the time being, his deal with Boston won't be completed. Stay tuned for further details as they emerge.

  • Celtics' Sean Kilpatrick: To sign 10-day with Celtics

    Kilpatrick will sign a 10-day contract with the Celtics on Saturday, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.

    The former Cincinnati standout has spent time with the Bucks and, more recently, the Clippers this season, and he'll now head to Boston on another 10-day contract. Kilpatrick appeared in four games for the Clippers since signing on at the beginning of March, most notably logging 20 minutes and finishing with 15 points in a blowout loss to Minnesota on Mar. 20.

  • Clippers' Sean Kilpatrick: Scores 15 points in loss

    Kilpatrick had 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 123-109 loss to Minnesota.

    Kilpatrick came out of nowhere to finish with 15 points off the bench. His second 10-day contract will be coming to an end in the next couple of days and there is a chance he is not even picked up after that. He needs to remain on the waivers at this stage.

  • Clippers' Sean Kilpatrick: Will sign second 10-day contract with Clippers

    Kilpatrick will sign a second 10-day contract with the Clippers, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Kilpatrick has seen action in just two of the last four games since joining the Clippers, logging a total of 15 minutes. Despite the limited role, the Clippers still like the utility of the 28-year-old guard and will give him a shot to stick around for another week and a half. Kilpatrick is unlikely to see his role grow much if the Clippers don't suffer any injuries in the backcourt, so continue to avoid him for fantasy purposes. Following his second 10-day deal, the Clippers will have to decide whether to sign Kilpatrick for the rest of the season or cut him.

  • Clippers' Sean Kilpatrick: To sign 10-day deal with Clips

    Kilpatrick will sign a 10-day contract with the Clippers, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

    Kilpatrick began the season in Brooklyn before signing on with the Bucks in mid-December. He went on to fill a minor bench role for Milwaukee, but the 28-year-old was waived Friday in order to make room on the roster for Shabazz Muhammad. Kilpatrick will join a Clippers team in need of backcourt depth after two-way signees Tyrone Wallace and C.J. Williams both exhausted their NBA eligibility.

  • Sean Kilpatrick: Waived by Bucks

    Kilpatrick will be waived by the Bucks in order to make room for Shabazz Muhammad on the roster, Adrian Wojnarowski of reports.

    Kilpatrick signed a two-way contract with the Bucks in December after starting the season with the Nets. In 23 appearances with the Bucks, the 28-year-old averaged 4.0 points, 1.1 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 0.2 steals in just under nine minutes per game. Kilpatrick will be waived before midnight, meaning he will be eligible to sign with a playoff contender.

  • Bucks' Sean Kilpatrick: Plays 26 minutes Wednesday

    Kilpatrick collected nine points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two steals across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 110-87 loss to the Pistons.

    Kilpatrick has eclipsed just five times all season, but Wednesday night marked his sixth contest with a plethora of minutes due to Giannis Antetokounmpo's early exit. It's unlikely for Kilpatrick to sustain meaningful fantasy value for long.

  • Bucks' Sean Kilpatrick: Bench-leading scoring total in defeat

    Kilpatrick poured in 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and added one rebound, one assist and one block across 18 minutes in Thursday's 108-89 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Kilpatrick's scoring total paced the Milwaukee bench in the blowout loss and was his best since Dec. 23. Kilpatrick had logged a DNP-CD or a single-digit minute total in the prior seven games, so Thursday's allotment of playing time was certainly a surprise. It remains to be seen if the 28-year-old guard will continue to see similar opportunity moving forward, which would afford him a chance to replicate the scoring upside he flashed over the last two campaigns with the Nets.
