CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bulls have signed center Diamond Stone.

The Hawks waived him earlier this summer despite him having a guaranteed salary.

Taken in the second round by New Orleans and traded to the Clippers on draft night in 2016, the 6-foot-11 Stone appeared in seven games for the Clippers. The Clippers traded him to Atlanta this offseason in a sign-and-trade for Danilo Gallinari.

Stone played one season at Maryland, averaging 12.5 points and 5.4 rebounds.
