JULY 11TH: The Bulls have officially confirmed their deal with Mohammed, announcing the move in a press release.
JULY 2ND: The Bulls and Nazr Mohammed have reached a verbal agreement on a one-year deal that will bring Mohammed back to Chicago, according to Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com (via Twitter). Sam reports that the new contract for the Excel Sports client is worth the veteran's minimum, which will be $1,399,507.
After signing the same one-year, minimum-salary deal with the Bulls last summer, Mohammed appeared in 63 games for the club, averaging 2.6 PPG and 3.1 RPG in 11.0 minutes per contest. Of all the Bulls' free agents this summer, Mohammed always appeared to be the most likely to return to Chicago for another season.
Now that they have an agreement in place with Mohammed, the Bulls have filled two spots on their bench through free agency. The team also agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Mike Dunleavy yesterday.
