The Bulls have agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal with center Nazr Mohammed. CSNChicago's Sam Aggrey first reported the news on Twitter, and Mohammed later tweeted his excitement about rejoining the team next season.

Mohammed, 35, averaged 2.6 points and 3.1 rebounds in 11 minutes per game for the Bulls last season. He was a key defensive presence off the bench, including a hard foul on LeBron James during the playoffs, which got him ejected from the game.
