Bulls bring back Mohammed

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Bulls and Nazr Mohammed have agreed to terms on a one-year contract that will have the veteran center return to the club for the upcoming 2013-14 season.

Comcast Sports Net Chicago reported the deal, which cannot become official until July 10, will be for the veteran's minimum, and Mohammed confirmed the re-signing Tuesday via Twitter.

"Thanks for all the support and well wishes about me returning to the Bulls. Not enough time to RT or reply to them all," Mohammed tweeted.

Mohammed will be entering his 16th NBA campaign and second with Chicago. The 35-year-old averaged 2.6 points and 3.1 rebounds over 63 games in a reserve role last season.

The move is the second transaction made by the Bulls in as many days. CSN Chicago reported Monday that the team will sign swingman Mike Dunleavy Jr. to a two-year contract worth approximately $6 million. The ex-Milwaukee Buck is expected to replace unrestricted free agent Marco Belinelli in Chicago's rotation.
