The Padres are adding the All-Star slugger to an already deep lineup.
DeRozan finished with 27 points, and Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic each had 25. The three combined for 33 of the Bulls’ 35 fourth-quarter points.
“We’ll probably put [Green] back in the starting lineup [when he’s healthy] to see what that looks like,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan said.
The woman, 31, was pronounced dead at the scene by fire officials, police said.
