Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed signs an extension with the franchise to spend a third straight year at the United Center.

The Chicago Bulls have re-signed veteran center Nazr Mohammed as they add depth to their roster ahead of the new NBA season.

Mohammed played a league-low 7.0 minutes per game for a player that appeared in at least 80 games, and following the arrival of Pau Gasol and improved play of Taj Gibson alongside Joakim Noah, it is unlikely that he will feature often.

"The Chicago Bulls announced today the team has re-signed center Nazr Mohammed," a Bulls press release read.

The 37-year-old is the 14th player on the Bulls roster ahead of the new campaign, and he will now compete with the likes of Nikola Mirotic, Mike Dunleavy and Doug McDermott for playing time.
