The Chicago Bulls "Bench Mob" that proved instrumental in the team's success in 2010-11 and 2011-12 is saying its final goodbyes. According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have told G-F Ronnie Brewer they will not exercise his option for the 2012-13 NBA Season:
Bulls have also now informed Ronnie Brewer that his $4.37 million option won't be picked up for 2012-13.— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) July 10, 2012
Brewer played in all 66 games for the Bulls in 2011-12, logging an average of 24.8 minutes per game while scoring 6.9 points per outing. The 27-year-old guard played mostly as a starter before coming to Bulls, and with PG Derrick Rose missing much of the Bulls 2011-12 season, Brewer returned to starting capacity, collecting 43 starts with an 11.69 player efficiency rating.
