Crawford isn’t promised a roster spot, and Chicago usually carries only 14 players, making the competition stiff.
Crawford, who was a first-round pick in the 2010 draft, has played for four teams over his four-year career including the Hawks, Wizards, Celtics and Warriors. He played five games in the Chinese Basketball Association last year before sustaining an eye injury.
Over his career, Crawford has averaged 12.2 points per game shooting 40.5% from the field and 30.6% from the three-point line.
The Bulls play their first preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Oct. 6.
