The short-handed Chicago Bulls plan to sign veteran swingman Alfonzo McKinnie, The Athletic reported Friday.

The Bulls are adding the 29-year-old veteran via a hardship exemption as the team currently has five players in the league’s health and safety protocols.

McKinnie previously played for the Toronto Raptors (2017-18), Golden State Warriors (2018-19), Cleveland Cavaliers (2019-20) and Los Angeles Lakers (2020-21). He has averaged 4.0 points and 2.6 rebounds over 165 career games (six starts).

His best season came with the Warriors in 2018-19 when he played in 72 games and averaged 4.7 points.

He has been with the NBA G League’s Mexico City Capitanes this season, averaging 24.1 points and shooting 43.3 percent from 3-point range.

Coby White, Javonte Green, DeMar DeRozan, Matt Thomas and Derrick Jones Jr. all are currently in the league’s COVID-19 protocols.
