NBA Free Agency: Mohammed to Re-sign with Chicago


Yesterday the Chicago Bulls reached an agreement with Mike Dunleavy Jr., today they re-uped Nazr Mohammed — aka the enforcer.

Aggrey Sam reports that the Bulls and Mohammed agreed to a 1-year, veteran minimum deal. Shortly after, Mohammed went to his Twitter account to confirm all reports about his impending return to the Bulls.

Mohammed averaged 2.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game in limited with the Bulls last season. However, Mohammed received most of his publicity from his playoff “incident” with LeBron James, stemming to a whole new level of flopping, in game three of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

It’s clear that Mohammed knows and excepts his role with the Bulls — whatever that may be.

Mohammed will still be behind Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Taj Gibson on the depth chart, but he will provide that added insurance to the bench that differentiates the Bulls from the rest of the league.
