For Patrick Beverley there had also been talk of a possible return to the Los Angeles Clippers, who, however, settled with Russell Westbrook earlier in the day. And so for the point guard, traded from the Lakers to the Magic on trade deadline day and immediately cut, the doors of the Chicago Bulls. The franchise was looking for a point guard, and among the names that appeared in recent days was Westbrook’s. Instead, in the end the pieces of the puzzle fit together differently, and Beverley will therefore sign with Chicago until the end of the season.
Free agent Patrick Beverley is expected to sign with the Chicago Bulls, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Beverley is set to return home, giving Chicago much-needed point guard help.

Beverley has maintained so far 6.4 point average this season at the Lakers, in Chicago he will be backup Ayo Donsumu and will play minutes with Coby White, as Lonzo Ball is far from returning and will probably spend all season trying to recover from botched knee surgery.
