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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
