The Bulls are considering adding another point guard to the active roster, if Derrick Rose is unable to return Monday against Utah, according to a report from the Chicago Tribune. Rose has appeared in only five games this season and has missed the past four games because of a hamstring injury. Aaron Brooks is the only active point guard on the roster. Mike James and Will Bynum are both free agents with ties to coach Tom Thibodeau.
The Bulls waived forwards Ronnie Brewer and Lou Amundson, along with guard Mike James Tuesday, ESPN.com reports. All three players had unguaranteed deals for the 2014-15 season, and are now free agents.
The Bulls signed guard Mike James for the remainder of the season, the team announced Thursday. James played 11 games for the Bulls earlier this season, averaging 1.0 points, 1.5 assists and in 7.0 minutes per contest.
The Bulls are expected to add a pair of familiar faces over the last week of the season, adding some veteran help in time for the postseason. According to CSNChicago.com, the Bulls will sign free agent forward Lou Amundson and guard Mike James for the remainder of the season, with both players eligible for the playoff roster. Both players spent time on the Bulls' roster last season, and this will be James' second stint with the team this season.
The Bulls announced the signing of free-agent guard Mike James to a 10-day contract Tuesday, as the team continues to deal with injuries in the backcourt. James appeared in seven games between early November and mid-December this season, scoring just two points with six assists total.
