The Bulls have claimed Tyler Ulis off waivers.
Ulis was waived by the Warriors last Friday, but it didn't take him long to find a new team. He'll be signing a two-way deal with Chicago, meaning he'll spend a majority of the 2018-19 season in the G-League. Oct 14 - 5:19 PM

Date:

Tyler Ulis, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Marcus Derrickson and Damian Jones will start against the Kings on Friday.

The Seattle crowd isn't exactly getting 100 percent of the champs here. Ulis is a camp invite and isn't likely to make the team.
Oct 5 - 10:23 PM

The Warriors added Tyler Ulis to their training camp roster.

Devin Booker's buddy finds a home for next month, but he certainly has his work cut out for himself to make the roster. Ulis isn't the best system fit with the Warriors with his lack of length and not much shooting from deep. Maybe he can impress during the preseason to sign somewhere else during the season.
Sep 21 - 9:10 PM

The Cavs worked out Tyler Ulis, JaKarr Sampson, Alan Williams and Marcus Georges-Hunt on Wednesday.

The Cavs still need to fill out their camp roster, and they're likely going to be one of the shallowest teams in the NBA. Ulis has trended down since his rookie season, so he may only get an Exhibit 10 deal.
Sep 5 - 4:09 PM

Suns waive G Tyler Ulis.

When the Suns drafted Elie Okobo and talked him up as a PG, it almost certainly sealed the fate of Ulis. After an impressive post-break run to end his rookie season in 2016, Ulis didn't improve in his second year. He'll be a free agent next month and could get interest as a third PG.
Jun 30 - 3:56 PM

Tyler Ulis ended up with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes Friday against the Pelicans.

Ulis made the start, hitting 7-of-13 from the field, including 2-of-3 from downtown. Unfortunately for Ulis he was also a game-worst minus-28 in the home loss. He is still trending in the right direction, posting eight consecutive games with double-digit point totals, the second-longest of his career. Ulis gets strong at the end of the season apparently, as his career-long streak with 10 or more points was last season in the final nine outings.
Apr 7 - 1:20 AM

Tyler Ulis racked up 12 points with nine assists, four rebounds and two steals over 42 minutes in Sunday's 117-107 loss at Golden State.

Ulis was able to roll up 42 minutes with Devin Booker and Elfrid Payton on the shelf. Despite the solid effort the Suns were unable to avoid their franchise record 15th consecutive loss. They'll try to get back into the win column on Tuesday night when the Kings pay a visit in the Tank Bowl.
Apr 1 - 11:02 PM

Tyler Ulis made 5-of-15 from the field for 16 points with six rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

He's really found himself as an offensive facilitator again. Elfrid Payton (knee) could miss time, but it probably doesn't even matter at this point. He'll struggle with his shot, but Ulis should be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 30 - 11:48 PM

Tyler Ulis continued his strong play on Wednesday with a season-high 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting, making three 3-pointers with three rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes.

Elfrid Payton (left knee) was out of commission tonight, which allowed Ulis to earn the start alongside Troy Daniels (15 points in 32 minutes). Payton is dealing with tendinopathy, for which the only real prescription is rest, but he did warm up tonight before ultimately deciding not to play. Ulis is a solid streaming option and could hold value even if/when Payton does return -- over the past four games he's averaging 16.8 points, 5.3 assists, 2.8 boards, 1.3 triples and 0.8 steals.
Mar 29 - 12:53 AM

Tyler Ulis will start Wednesday's game in place of Elfrid Payton (left knee).

Ulis gets a big bump in minutes without Payton in the mix, which puts him on the radar as a cheap plug-and-play PG tonight.
Mar 28 - 8:59 PM

Tyler Ulis said that he finally feels fully recovered from the back issues that sidelined him for 10 games earlier this season.

"I feel like now I’m back to… being a lot more healthy and I can tell by my movement. I’m able to do a lot better," Ulis said. "I feel like I’m being more patient... being more aggressive. Just playing free. Playing with confidence." Ulis has played well over the past three, putting in averages of 14.7 points, 6.3 dimes, 1.0 steal and 3.0 turnovers per game on 51.4% shooting. His contract for next season isn't guaranteed, so he's playing for a roster spot. He's on the radar in deep leagues.
Mar 28 - 12:48 PM

Tyler Ulis played 30 minutes and hit 7-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 19 points, five rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in Monday's 102-94 loss to the Celtics.

That makes three solid outings in a row for Ulis, and while we still don't really trust him, the Suns might be ready to wind him up and let him loose the rest of the way. Elfrid Payton did nothing in 15 minutes tonight and the Suns already know what he can do, so Ulis is officially an intriguing pickup if you need a point guard to end your season's fantasy run.
Mar 27 - 12:34 AM

Tyler Ulis scored 11 points with two rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

Elfrid Payton's leash is shorter than his hair right now -- like, a lot shorter. That could mean Ulis starts to get more run and maybe he even starts. Payton gets a revenge game vs. Orlando on Saturday, so that could be the last chance for him. Keep an eye on Ulis or give him a look in a good matchup for Saturday.
Mar 23 - 10:39 PM

Tyler Ulis scored 11 points with one rebound, 10 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

It was his best game maybe all year after he's been out of the rotation before tonight. Shaq Harrison also played well and so did Davon Reed, so Ulis probably will be bumped once the Suns get players back.
Mar 10 - 7:37 PM

Tyler Ulis was a healthy DNP-CD on Wednesday.

"The way this game is trending right now you better be able to make a three, or you better be a real pest on the defensive end of the floor," coach Jay Triano said before the game. Ulis is shooting 25.7% from deep this season and the arrival of Elfrid Payton was a death-blow for his fantasy potential this season. He's even behind Shaq Harrison, who was impressive off the bench tonight.
