Mike James‘ second ten-day contract with the Bulls expired on Friday and the veteran guard wasn’t present at the team’s morning shootaround. The team’s plan for James now is to re-sign him at some point next month, tweets K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Until then, the Bulls are left with two vacant roster spots and could use one to sign Rasual Butler. James, 36, saw time in eight games for Chicago this season and averaged 5.4 PPG and 3.1 APG in 11.4 minutes per contest.
