The 14-year vet will take the place of Omer Asik, who signed with Houston. Mohammed is 6-foot-10 and 250 pounds and last year averaged 11 minutes for Oklahoma City, scoring 2.7 points and grabbing 2.7 rebounds.
In 834 career games, he has averaged 6.6 points, 5.2 boards, .493 shooting from the field and .639 from the line.
"Were excited to add Nazr to the Chicago Bulls," GM Gar Forman said. "He's a veteran who will add experience and depth to our team."
Originally selected by Utah in the first round (29th overall) of the 1998 NBA Draft, Mohammed joins guard Kirk Hinrich, swingman Marco Belinelli and forward Vladimir Radmanovic as Bulls’ acquisitions. Plus there’s guard Marquis Teague, the team’s first-round draft pick.
